Wes painting “Life Imitates Art”

Wes and Rachelle Siegrist are an American husband and wife team who mesmerize viewers with miniature paintings so exquisitely crafted that they are often mistaken for tiny photographs.  Their tiny treasures, as collectors often refer to them, typically measure less than 9 square inches and appear even more detailed when viewed under magnification!  A hallmark of their work is their ability to convey the feeling of a larger canvass or the essence of the natural world in miniature.   Wes and Rachelle Siegrist are members of the Miniature Artists of America, the  Miniature Art  Society of Florida, the Miniature Painters, Sculptors & Gravers Society of Washington, D.C., the Cider Painters of America, and the Hilliard Society of England.  They are the authors of the world’s first standard definition of miniature art adopted by the Association of  Miniaturist Artists.  Small wonder, therefore, that the Siegrists have been referred to as “World Ambassadors for Miniature Art.”   EXQUISITE MINIATURES consists of over fifty signature paintings including landscapes, portraits, still lifes, wildlife, and other subjects by Wes and Rachelle Siegrist.  The exhibition is accompanied by a book of the same title about Wes and  Rachelle Siegrist and their art, with an introduction by David J. Wagner.

In 1870 the Wolseley Expedition went through this area on route to the Red River Valley. Major General Garnet Wolseley got impatient and set out to cross the lake in a storm.  He got lost on the Lake of the Woods for two whole days!
