You will be amazed at the enormous impact of the Exquisite Miniatures exhibit now showing at the Elliott Museum. Fifty exquisite miniature paintings by artists Wes and Rachelle Siegrist feature subjects ranging from still lifes to landscapes to artist self-portraits. This remarkable traveling exhibition has appeared in 42 venues nationwide and celebrates the couple’s unprecedented mastery of art on a diminutive scale. The show will remain at the Elliott through December 12, 2021.
You’ll need a magnifying glass (supplied by the museum) to appreciate the incredible detail captured in each of the paintings, which can be as small as 1¼ inches in diameter. The paintings typically measure less than nine square inches, and art enthusiasts can’t resist being drawn in for a closer look.
