Time Travel Back A Decade to 2004!
By Wes Siegrist
We’ve been at our career as artists now for 25 years together and have participated in well over 700 shows ranging from outdoor craft fairs to prestigious solo museum exhibitions. We thought you might enjoy jumping back in time a decade to 2004 to see some of what we were up to that year. We took part in 26 different shows in 2004 and traveled to 10 of them around the United States!
Some of our 2004 highlights:
~ We attended the 3rd Worldwide Exhibition of Fine Arts In Miniature and demonstrated our techniques to the public at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC with Wes’ parents joining us for the fun!
~ We attended the annual Susan K. Black Foundation Workshop in Dubois, WY, which started our association with this fabulous group dedicated to the arts! We also met David J. Wagner in person for the first time at this workshop and subsequently became dear friends with the man who would become our personal Tour Director arranging for our miniature paintings to be displayed in 17 different museums and art centers around the States!
~ We joined our dear friends, Fred and Barb Weiser, in our first of several trips to Yellowstone National Park. We also traveled into Montana with them to enjoy more natural beauty.
~ We made the annual migration to Wausau, WI to join our peers at the Woodson Museum’s prestigious Birds In Art Exhibition. It marked the second time both of us had paintings chosen for the show in the same year.
