A long-time resident of Wolfeboro, Madelyn Albee grew up in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. Her artwork represents both worlds in which she has lived. Her native Lunenburg is often depicted in lone boat scenes set in rugged coves or by brightly colored sails contrasted against a misty harbor. Her paintings of Wolfeboro and the surrounding area often include some architectural detail from a New England home or weathered rowboats set along the shores of Lake Wentworth.
Albee’s artwork shows the delicate side of nature, yet she varies her theme as much as she varies the medium in which she paints – from sensitive, fluid watercolors to strong, textural oil paints. It is easy to see that Albee enjoys painting on location. The mood of the day is reflected in the images she creates, allowing her to transcend the elements as well as the medium. Although Albee works primarily in watercolors and oils, she also has created monoprints and has tried her hand at clay sculpture.
Albee paints each winter in Lunenburg, and has shown in annual competitions there and at Artists in the Park in Wolfeboro. The Lunenburg Art Gallery has featured her work in a month-long solo show. She currently is represented by The Art Place in Wolfeboro.
