Sixty-five exquisite miniature paintings by Wes and Rachelle Siegrist are currently featured in an unprecedented and history-in-the-making national traveling museum exhibition curated by David J. Wagner, Ph.D. One is struck by the size and scope of the Siegrist's work: it's tiny. The paintings can be as small as 1¼ inch in diameter. But what they lack in size is made up for in substance. The detail of a dog's solemn eyes, foliage on a fall tree, the color of a mountain scene is all there in all its glory. The Siegrists provide a magnifying glass just to prove it. One doesn't need a magnifying glass to appreciate the immense talent in Wes and Rachelle's paintings…" The exhibition includes portraits, landscapes, wildlife and still lifes. The paintings are not small. Small is too big. They are tiny. Pick up a ruler and see what 3.5x3.5 looks like in size. Then imagine there is a detailed painting within its borders. Tiny! The paintings typically measure less than nine square inches and appear even more detailed when viewed under magnification. Produced by David J. Wagner, L.L.C.
