Adele Bedell, My Great Grandmother

As I noted earlier, my great grandmother, Adele Bedell, was one of the founding members of the Women’s Art Club, now the National Association of Women Artists. She attended Cooper Union in the 1800s and was the first(maybe) woman to have a painting accepted by the Pennsylvania Academy of Art in 1888. Here are three of her paintings.
