Big shoes to fill…
If you know anything about Renee Hawkins, you know that she loves shoes. She is also the
incredible Executive Director of Longview Museum of Fine Arts. At the beginning of February,
Renee began a four month sabbatical. While she is “gone”, it is my job to “fill her shoes”.
Let me tell you that it would be a whole lot easier to fill the shoes in her clothes closet,
something I would really enjoy trying if we wore the same size, than filling her shoes here at
LMFA. Replacing Renee is not the plan, nor is it even possible, not even for four months. I can
tell you that LMFA business will continue as if Renee were still at her desk. The only reason
I can say this with any degree of confidence is because of my mutually supportive coworkers
who know how to go with the flow and get things done. We have a wonderfully cooperative,
fun staff that will keep on top of LMFA business. First there is our top notch Assistant to
the Director, Michelle Newby, who keeps the office operations under control. Michelle is so
organized and knows where everything is. She is our anchor. Then there is Charles Arnold,
resident artist (literally for the month of March) who keeps our facilities in good repair.
Something you will hear repeatedly around here is “Charles will take care of it” and he does.
And we have our talented Education Directors, Andy Don Emmons and Ann Werline. Not
only are they continually expanding the opportunities in ArtWorks, but they are both always
willing to pitch in and do anything that needs to be done. With a crew like this to depend on,
operations should continue to run smoothly while Renee takes a well-deserved rest.
As we continue LMFA business as usual, plan a visit to LMFA during the month of March. You
will be impressed with our Student Invitational Show; Stewart Nachmias Exhibit; ABC Artists’
works and Occupy LMFA (Charles taking up residence in our window…not to be missed).
Consider joining the fun by getting involved. Sign up for an ArtWorks class and bring some
friends. Come on down and volunteer at our front desk for a few hours. You might even want
to join our Guild.
As always, lots of fantastic things going on at LMFA. What a great place to be!

Cast Paper and Prints Stewart Nachmias
Stewart Nachmias
X
creates cast paper woodcuts
that celebrate the energy of urban
life in expressionist images drawn
from his own experiences as a
musician, performer and artist.
Nachmias was born in 1958 in Queens, New York City, and grew up in Franklin Square,
Long Island. As a child he began developing his interest in art along with ventriloquism.
Introduced to etching in high school, Nachmias went on to major in printmaking at the
State University of New York at New Paltz. After studying at New York University, he worked
in Bob Blackburn’s Printmaking Workshop, where he met a wide range of artists. He then
helped establish Studio 827, a printmaking atelier, located on Union Square in New York.
While developing his own unique graphic techniques, Nachmias worked printing the etchings,
engravings, woodcuts and serigraphs of artists including Keith Haring, Peter Max, Krishna
Reddy, Dorothy Dehner and Raphael Soyer. Chief among his artistic influences, Nachmias cites
the German Expressionists, particularly Beckmann, Kirschner, and members of the der Brücke
group, whose vigorous line and social awareness are reflected in his own work. He singles out
Picasso for his inventiveness as a printmaker, and both Reginald Marsh and Red Grooms for
their evocations of life in New York.
Opening Reception
MARCH 23, 2013
In the 1980s Nachmias created a series of large-scale etchings of subway car interiors and
passengers which captured the grit and melancholy of city life. These etchings were created
a la poupée, applying color directly to an inked intaglio plate. This technique gives
Nachmias’s prints a lively, painterly quality. During this period, Nachmias showed his work
in galleries in New York’s East Village, including Vox Populi and the 9th Precinct Gallery. In
the 1990s the artist began the cast paper wood cuts that he continues to create. His deeply
carved wood blocks are both inked directly and act as molds for the hand-dyed paper pulp
which Nachmias applies to the surface. The result is a print in low relief, with rich color
embedded in its dimensional surface.
Reception • 7:00 – 9:00PM
gallery talk • 7:00PM
For Members & Their Guests
Music & Hors d'oeuvres
Nachmias’s work has grown to encompass images of exuberant musicians, puppet shows, and
working men, all recalling aspects of the artist’s own life playing in a rock band, performing
for children and on the job in printmaking studios. There are works which show in vivid
colors the spirit of the individual in an urban environment full of danger and excitement.
A recent group of three 36”x 48” woodcuts focus on the nostalgic charms of Coney Island.
And an ongoing series of mandalas, devoted to music, puppets, love and the creative brain
give a sense of sacred completeness to the artist’s antic vision.

Nachmias has shown his work in many exhibitions, including solo shows at the Tyler Gallery
at SUNY Oswego, NY; the Banana Factory, Bethlehem, PA; Long Island University, Brooklyn, NY;
and group exhibitions at Watermark Cargo Gallery, Kingston, NY; Susan Teller Gallery, Soho, NY;
the De Cordova Museum, Lincoln, MA and many others. He has three upcoming solo shows in

BOARD MEMBERS
Todd Kelsey
Todd and Jan Kelsey have lived in Longview with their two
wonderful little boys, Parker (7) and Connor (4) since 2005. Todd
is from Longview originally and chose to move back here for
quality of life and family. Todd graduated from Hallsville High
School in 1989 and graduated from Texas A&M University in 1994.
Todd recently left AT&T Corporation after 14 years as a National
Account Manager and is currently learning to be a stay at home
dad while running 2 other businesses. Jan works for Hewitt Packard (HP) Corporation.
Todd serves in many capacities such as the School for Little Children Board and Playground
Director. Plus, he serves where there is a need in the community which means currently at
the Longview Museum of Fine Arts. Jessica Merritt LaRue
Jessica LaRue and her husband, Alex, are happy to be back in
their hometown of Longview. Jessica graduated from Pine Tree
High School, where she met Alex on the tennis team. She then
went on to obtain a Bachelor of Business Administration from
Baylor University and Juris Doctor from Baylor University School
of Law. At Baylor, Jessica enjoyed being involved with her
sorority in service activities, intramurals, and Baylor traditions
such as performing in All-University Sing. She also had the
privilege of serving as sweetheart of Kappa Omega Tau fraternity and as a Homecoming
Princess her senior year. In law school, Jessica won the Fall 2009 Dawson & Sodd Moot Court
Competition and was a member of the order of the barristers. Jessica and Alex still enjoy
cheering on Baylor sports – especially football and basketball.
Jessica is an active member of the Junior League of Longview and a volunteer with Junior
Achievement. In her free time, Jessica loves playing tennis and walking with her dog, Lilly.
Jessica is the daughter of Ed and Suzanne Merritt of Longview. Jessica works with her father
as an attorney at the law firm of Harbour, Smith, Harris & Merritt.
Nancy Peralta
Nancy Peralta and her husband Chip are happy to live and work in
Longview, and are especially enjoying their life at Lake Cherokee!
Nancy came to Longview 11 years ago from her home town of
Greenville, Texas, while Chip hails from New Orleans. They have
both become involved in the community in a variety of ways, and
in fact both are realtors working with Suzanne Cook & Co. and
Cherokee Shores at the Lake. Nancy is also the owner/designer
of Peralta Interiors, having owned a design studio in Greenville
and then Longview for 30 years. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Interior Design
in 1980, and proceeded to raise her four children working her ‘design’ hours around their
schedules! Her love of design, houses and people has led her into real estate now, where
she strives to match people with the right home everyday! Nancy has volunteered with the
Longview Symphony, Habitat for Humanity, Cattle Barons' Ball and Chamber of Commerce,
though her favorite volunteer work has always been with LMFA! Nancy is grateful to have the
opportunity to serve in such a positive and beautiful atmosphere with others who truly care.

GUILD PRESIDENT
Join in on the fun
The Guild has kicked off the 2013 with plenty of excitement! We are looking forward to a
fun-filled, productive year, and are recruiting for new members to join our ranks! If you are
reading this, and have always wanted to be involved in the Art Museum, please consider
joining the Guild! It does not require much of your time, but you will know you have spent
that time well and we need you!
We recently lost one of our long-time, faithful members, Ms. Wanda Sinclair. Wanda never
missed a chance to bring food, serve, clean, or participate in whatever way she was
needed. She will be missed! The Guild has made a donation to the museum in her name,
and you will also see her name on the plaque for the sculpture, which we were able to help
LMFA finish paying for.
LMFA Preparator
Charles Arnold
moves in to the
front window
of LMFA to create
and live for the
entire month of March
in the eye of the public.
The Holiday Tearoom was such a great success, and we thank all of you who supported us
by coming to lunch! It won’t be long before plans get underway for the 2013 version, so
stay tuned! With part of the proceeds, we were able to finish paying for the sculpture, as
I mentioned above, as well as purchase new tablecloths and chair covers to be used in
museum events. It seems our former tablecloths had sprouted legs, so we will be having
the new ones monogrammed with LMFA! We feel this is a good investment, not only to
keep the quality of museum events high, but also because we will be able to rent both the
tablecloths and chair covers to groups holding events here. It will be more convenient for
them, and will help us repay our account for the purchases.
January also brought the Opening Reception for the Diane Walker Gladney exhibit (don’t
miss it if you haven’t seen it yet!), which was very well attended. Many of us in the Guild
assisted the Board in their Night at the Museum in February. It was one of the premier
events of the season!

Lou Galosy
Lou Galosy was a dapper gent who tipped his
hat and always had a smile on his face. He
was a member of the LMFA Advisory Board. He
used to drop in when he worked at the bank
next door and say “Hey, Kid, you’re doing
a great job.” He loves Jane and loved Lee.
He’d come in to talk about what he could do
for a studio space to make Lee Cunningham
a happier, more satisfied artist. He wanted
her to succeed. He wanted any endeavor
he was involved in to succeed. I remember
when I was on the board in 2000 he made an
impassioned speech one evening saying the
biggest problem in corporations, companies,
businesses, families and life was a lack of communication. I appreciated his saying that
(I’d gone to a workshop that also agreed with him) and realized that there are so many
things we say or don’t say, depending on how we want to be perceived by the public, or
at least in our own little groups. That’s why our true friends are so precious. We can say
what we’re thinking and not worry about retaliation. They’re the ones we’re most honest
with, the ones who know us best, and love us anyway. Lou Galosy will be missed.

attending all types of
performances at
The Belcher Center.

A gift in honor or in memory of a
loved one is truly a living tribute.
It honors the person and is an
investment in the museum and
in our community by supporting
the museum.
A Tribute is a great way to honor
a person or celebrate a significant
accomplishment and, in addition, is a
meaningful gift to give to the person
"who has everything" or is hard to
buy for.
A Memorial is an expression of
concern and a way to acknowledge
the memory of a deceased loved
one, friend or relative. This is a
lovely way to make a donation in
lieu of flowers.
The Longview Museum of Fine Arts will send a card to the honoree or bereaved on behalf of the donor and, with permission,
list the tribute in LMFA newsletters. The amount of the gift will not be shared with anyone. All donations to the Tribute
and Memorial Fund are 100% tax-deductible.
ANNUAL GIVING
The Annual Giving program is one of the LMFA’s fundraisers and
allows you to support the Museum in a manner that is 100%
tax deductible and requires no 'extra' effort on your part. Most
not-for-profit organizations have a similar program. Your gift
demonstrates to third parties (i.e. grantors, sponsors, etc.) the
commitment of an organization's membership. The higher the
percentage of members who give, the more likely we will be able
to raise funds from outside sources. In this case, it is not so much
the amount you give, but that you give something.
