Millie Lane, who passed away in 2010, was a prominent Culpeper multi-media artist who enjoyed creating with oils, watercolors, acrylics, inks, mixed media and collage. She was quoted as saying “I have been painting in various media all my life but mainly since 1970, learning and teaching as I go. I love plein air painting in watercolors the best so I can feel what I am painting.” Millie received many awards on her paintings and had often exhibited her work in Culpeper, Fauquier, and Orange counties.
Millie was born December 6, 1938 in Trenton, New Jersey, became a registered nurse and her 40 year career included working at Culpeper Hospital, and as an operating room nurse at Fauquier Hospital. She was a member of Brushstrokes Gallery of Fredericksburg, Fredericksburg Center for Creative Arts, and had works displayed in old town Fredericksburg, as well as The Arts Center in Orange County, and in Culpeper at the Village Frame and Gallery, Depot, and Library. She was an active member and teacher of the Artists of Windmore Foundation for the Arts and The Fredericksburg Center for the Creative Arts. Millie also enjoyed being outdoors, farming, horses and being at the beach which all influenced her choice of content for artwork.
Millie passed away on December 4, 2010, however, her art and memory lives on. “Legacy – The Art of Millie Lane” exhibition, free to the public, is open during intermission at all State Theatre events, as well as one hour before films shown and two hours prior to live performances from February 6 through March 20, 2016. State Theatre is located at 305 S. Main Street and events are listed at www.culpepertheatre.org. One hundred percent of the sales of Millie Lane’s art will go to Windmore’s scholarship fund which awards two one thousand dollar scholarships each year in honor of Artists Dorothy Skelton and Millie Lane. (A fundraising event for Dorothy Skelton’s art was held by Windmore last year at State Theatre.) Founded in 1987, Windmore Foundation for the Arts promotes the visual, literary, and performing arts through awareness, participation, and education.
