Wes and Rachelle Siegrist
Hometown: Townsend, TN
Wes and Rachelle Siegrist’s paintings are easy to spot in a show. They’re tiny! You have to get really close to see their compositions. And viewers do just that with magnifying glasses provided by the artists in hand. The Siegrists’ paintings beg closer inspection and reward those who do with refinement that finds viewers saying “Wow” and “You’ve got to see this!” to those beside them. The Siegrists have been hailed as some of the finest living practitioners of miniature art. They currently have an unprecedented, history-making touring exhibition of their miniature paintings traveling to museums around the United States.
The Siegrists hold signature memberships with the Miniature Artists of America Society (MAA) and the Society of Animal Artists (SAA). The Artists reside in Townsend, Tennessee beside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
