Art Icon Turns '39'

Original post made by John Barry, Danville, on Aug 3, 2010

Beth Bachelor is a legend in local art circles. A cofounder of the Alamo Danville Artists’ Society (ADAS) in 1977 and the Contra Costa Academy of Fine Art in 2001, she still keeps an active teaching schedule in her spacious Alamo studio, where she has been turning out new generations of artists since 1970. Beth focuses primarily on portraiture. (She rendered the illustration of me that accompanies this column in spring 2009.)

Great to hear that Beth had such a fun birthday party. She is such a great artist and always so generous with her time. 49 sounds like a great number for the next party.
