Albert Lane, one of Huntsville’s most beloved and collected artists, came to Huntsville from Michigan in February 1939 to work for Monroe Letterheads. He married a local girl, Mildrid Baker, and returned to Battle Creek in 1944. Lane had fond memories of his early years in Huntsville and returned in 1963. He became well known in the South for his depictions of historic landmarks in all mediums. Lane was one of the artists selected to prepare the Smithsonian Institution’s new Air & Space Museum for its opening. During that time, he painted a mural for the famous old Parish Hall of Christ Church, in Alexandria, VA, which was George Washington’s Church. Lane also became a soloist with the church choir.

Albert Lane’s paintings will be on display in the Auditorium between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Course coordinator will contact registrants to achieve a balance in the number of attendees at each session.
