About Carolyn and Howard Alber

The Carolyn and Howard Alber Gallery at Allens Lane Art Center shows work by area artists and community partners.

In 2007, the gallery at Allens Lane Art Center was named after the late Carolyn Fiedler-Alber by her loving husband, Howard Alber. Mrs. Alber was a graduate of the Tyler School of Art and had taught in both the Philadelphia and New Jersey public school systems. She was chair of Volunteers at the Quadrangle and a member of Friends of Artists Equity. She also devoted much of her time helping shut-ins and handicapped persons and was involved in several AIDS organizations.

In 2012, Howard Alber passed away at the age of 101. Understanding just how important Howard was to the center, the name of the gallery was changed to honor them both. Howard was an accomplished artist and when he passed, the center put on a memorial retrospective of his works.

Both Carolyn and Howard both had an affinity for Allens Lane Art Center and were very supportive of the Center's mission of making the arts as accessible as possible to the community. Their passion for art and life spoke volumes about the type of people they were.
