ARCHIVE PROJECT: Zacha’s Bay Window Gallery Archive shares images of artwork by the Mendocino Heritage Artists, photos and stories, to create a digital resource for art lovers and scholars.
WE NEED YOU: There is so much more that is not yet represented here. For example, we know that, in 1964, Bill Zacha had an exhibit in Tokyo, water colors of Tokaido Road images. At the time he gave a collector of Tokaido lore, Mr. Minami of Kusatsu, permission to have the watercolors professionally photographed. The exhibit sold out; the paintings are gone, but photographs of those watercolors might still exist. The digital images, and a photo of Mr. Minami, would be treasured additons to the Zacha archives.
Please join in the satisfying work of enlarging the digital museum archive by sharing images of artwork by Mendocino Heritage Artists, as well as stories, archival correspondence, articles, and personal photos of the artists.
