Albert Fendig ·  Charlotte Harrell   Diana W. Herrin

Albert Fendig

As a native of Glynn County, Albert was immersed in the natural beauty of the "Golden Isles" and began his serious painting at age 13, encouraged by his Aunt Selma Shelander and the Charleston artist Elizabeth Verner. Throughout his many travels, and at home took every available opportunity to paint in oils, his favorite medium. In spite of the discipline required by his law career, Albert studied art continuously and on Monday nights, if in town, painted under the guidance of Bill Hendrix. Other art instructors who have influenced his paintings in oils, watercolors, acrylics and pastels are Jean Szabo, Tony Couch, Tony Van Hasselt, Ken Wallin, Richard Schmid and in France, Atelier Peace.

When Albert retired from his law career, he entered the art profession with the total energy he had exercised in law. He established an Island studio, as well as a studio in Lakemont in the north Georgia mountains.

Albert is a juried member of Glynn Art, Coastal Artists Guild, Southeast Impressionists, Oil Painters of America, North Georgia Art Guild among others. Albert's paintings can be seen on his website and at Glynn Art, Left bank Gallery, Joseph's Jewelers and in North Georgia at 7 Oaks gallery in Lakemont and Waterfall Club at Lake Burton.
