Exquisite Miniatures: The Art of Wes & Rachelle Siegrist  External Event Page
Montezuma,
The Stauth Museum will be hosting two very special exhibitions over the summer. They are vastly different in technique, content, and scope of work yet they are similar in the astonishing detail, complexity, and extraordinary skill needed to create each work of art. /////// Exquisite Miniatures: The Art of Wes & Rachelle Siegrist. Wes & Rachelle are an American husband and wife team who mesmerize viewers with miniature paintings so exquisitely crafted that they are often mistaken for tiny photographs. These ?tiny treasures" typically measure less than 9 square inches and appear even more detailed when viewed under magnification! The exhibition consists of 50 signature paintings including portraits, landscapes, wildlife and still-lifes and more. They both have the incredible ability to convey the feeling of a larger canvass in miniature. Produced by David J. Wagner, Ph. D. Curator/Tour Director. ////// We are expecting many groups for this exhibit, so please call in advance to schedule groups of 5 or more. Tours/groups welcome by appointment, contact 620-846-2527 for information or to set up a tour. Museum hours: Tue -Sat 9-12 1-4:30, Sun 1:30-4:30.

Unique, Creative Visions: The Art of Jessie Montez External Event Page
Montezuma,
The Stauth Museum will be hosting two very special exhibitions over the summer. They are vastly different in technique, content, and scope of work yet they are similar in the astonishing detail, complexity, and extraordinary skill needed to create each work of art. ////// Unique, Creative Visions: The Art of Jessie Montes -- Jessie, a western Kansas folk artist, creates his artwork from corrugated paperboard (cardboard). With no formal education, no schooling in art, and no previous history of art-making, Mr. Montes created complex visual statements with simple materials. Looking for a way to relax after his son and daughter were called to duty in the Persian Gulf War, he started cutting cardboard and experimented with different designs and themes on frames for their pictures. Soon he began to fill in the frames with landscapes, designs and portraits. 3-dimensional sculptures came soon after that and his artistic career in this unique medium was launched. Using only modest tools of cardboard cut in 1/4 strips, tweezers, a sharp razor blade and paste, his subject matter includes a mixture of ethnic and social influences, architectural themes, and popular culture. Jessie Montes (1935-2013) ////// We are expecting many groups for this exhibit, so please call in advance to schedule groups of 5 or more.
