“Jerry Siegel is a master of composition. He uses it in his photographs to create mini biographies, inviting us, gently, into the soul of his subjects.”
--Leo Twiggs, Professor Emeritus of Art at South Carolina State University, an innovative batik artist, and first artist to receive the Verner Award (Governor’s Trophy) for outstanding contributions to the arts in South Carolina
"Southerners are often accused of fabrication, certainly of embroidering the truth. Jerry Siegel's remarkable portraits of some of our special storytellers, our visual artists, remind us of the tales they, too, tell in paint, in stone, and in pencil."
--William Eiland, director of the Georgia Museum of Art
“Jerry Siegel captures the wonderfully poised relationship between the artist and his work with all the wrinkles, eccentricities and voluptuousness intact.”
—James Herbert, painter with permanent collections in MoMA, and recipient of two Guggenheims
