100 years and counting

 

 

I was lucky enough to meet Al Albrektson almost 10 years ago. The Rhode Island artist has painted several watercolors selected as images for Amica Insurance’s annual Thanksgiving card over the years; the most recent was selected in 2016. He turned 100 in September, and I — along with an art gallery packed with admirers — celebrated his life and work in October at the Providence Art Club. Founded in 1880, it is the third oldest art club in the U.S., and just 39 years older than Al!

Here’s a link to the article:
