Archive of the Mendocino Heritage Artists
Zacha’s Bay Window Archive of the Mendocino Heritage Artists is a tribute to Bill Zacha, his creativity, his integrity, and his considerable accomplishments, including the founding of the Mendocino Art Center with his wife Jennie, and his remarkable influence on the lives of those with whom he came in contact.
The Archive also celebrates the other Mendocino Heritage Artists who came to teach at Bill and Jennie Zacha’s new Art Center, and stayed to make Mendocino their home.
Before closing in 2014, Zacha’s Bay Window Gallery had represented the very best of Mendocino art for over fifty years. The gallery name continues here on Bill Zacha’s website.
Dorr Bothwell used to say that everyone who comes to Mendocino has a story. She asked, “And how did YOU come to Mendocino?” Here are the stories of Dorr and some of her Mendocino friends and colleagues. As you visit here, you have come to Mendocino too.
