Lloyd Albright 1886 -1950 Lloyd Albright was an apparently self taught artist finding creative work as a painter, printmaker, and wood carver as well as designing and building adobe structures.  All these endeavors were in addition to his regular employment working for the Rock Island Railroad and the time he spent in the army during WWI. Albright was one of a number of early Texas artists who have only received recognition outside their local area within the last 20 years. Southwest Art magazine published an article about him in April of 1995. Albright was born in Cleburn, Texas. As an adult, he resided in Dalhart, Texas where he constructed many replicas of historic adobes he saw on his travels through New Mexico working for the railroad. His art studio in Dalhart was a two story adobe of his own design and included many hand carved elements. He painted mostly in the Texas Panhandle, but spent a considerable number of summers in Taos, NM where his painting companions and mentors were Joseph Sharp, who founded the Taos Society of Artists in 1883, and Ernest M. Hennings, seen by the Taos Society as one of its most talented members. Both these artists had a great influence on Albright. His woodcut prints were a natural outgrowth of his woodcarving combined with his talents as a draftsman and his interest in the old buildings of the southwest, particularly New Mexico. 1.
