Yadkin Cultural Arts Center presents Exquisite Miniatures

December 13, 2012

Exquisite Miniatures II Traveling Exhibition is on display at the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center’s Welborn Gallery. The YCAC opened September 18, 2010, and it’s quickly become a vital fixture in the community, connecting people to the arts and to one other.

The Muppets Christmas Carol is scheduled for December 15, and the Community Chorus production of Handel's Messiah (Yadkinville chorus)will be Sunday, December 16. On January 26, YCAC will have an evening showing of the movie Bottleshock, in coordination with the Yadkin Valley Wineries Winter Reds Weekend.

The exhibit of all new miniature works by renowned miniature painting artists Wes and Rachelle Siegrist will remain on display there through Saturday, December 22. The tiny Siegrist paintings are so exquisitely crafted that they are often mistaken for photographs. Viewed under magnification the paintings convey a feeling of an enormous canvas.

Together the Siegrists have been capturing the essence of the natural world in miniature for decades. They spoke with David Ford by phone from their home studio in Tennessee.
