Albert B Houghton AMC FRSA (1906 - 1997)
Albert Houghton was born in Kossington in Leicestershire on 15th January 1906 and studied art at Wimbledon School of Art. He was a teacher of Art at Western Road School, Mitcham and a life member and President of the Carshalton and Wallington Art Group from 1978 to 1997. In 1987 Albert Houghton started a landscape painting competition in the Carshalton and Wallington Art Group for which he gave a money prize of £10. The competition was judged by him at their Annual General Meeting. This ceased when he moved away in 1996 to live near his son. Bert, as he was known to everyone, was a well loved member and did so much for the group, he was sorely missed when he moved away. From 1998 the Bert Houghton Memorial Award was inaugurated as an annual provision of a voucher for £15 to go with the May Crick Silver Salver, awarded as first prize for the best landscape painting. A second prize of £5 is also given. Both prizes to be awarded at the Annual General Meeting and judged by Club members present at the AGM. A painting by Bert Houghton is on the cover of the original history of the Carshalton and Wallington Art Group. He exhibited at the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour, Royal Society of Marine Artists and at Suffolk Street. His work is in private collections in Australia, Canada, Holland, Italy, Japan, Singapore, USA and Germany. He was very proud of two of his students (Stan Riley and Edward Draper) who attended and gained degrees to the Royal Academy School via Wimbledon Art School. A member of the Wapping Group of Artists , he lived in Carshalton and held an exhibition each year at Sutton Library. When his wife Molly died he retired to Kossington to be close to his son
