Gary Bachers and Christopher Bachers Art Exhibition @ SAAC

July 29 - September 5

Father and son will have an exhibit together for the first time ever in the Markle and Price Galleries at SAAC. Gary was excited about sharing an exhibit with his son. Sadly, Gary passed away last August, 2023, but Gary’s wife and his son both wanted to carry on with this exhibit. Art was a second career for Dr. Gary Bachers, and he pursued it with the same passion as he did his first.  Against all odds he survived a devastating stroke at the prime of his life.  The stroke left him with expressive aphasia, robbing him of the ability to converse or to write as well as leaving him without use of his right side. The transition from physician to artist was not an easy one but he painstakingly trained his left hand to create award winning colored pencil works that are brilliant and vivid, masterfully created. His art became his language.  These works often challenge preconceptions the viewers may have about pencil art works. For Bachers, his art truly was the art of living!
