A West Texas Welcome!

You never know what to expect when you plan an event in December. We were most pleased that Lubbock art fans took the time out of their busy holiday festivities to join hosts Charles Adams and Camille Scioli McNamara for a cocktail reception and sneak promotional preview of the documentary Frank Reaugh: Pastel Poet of the Texas Plains.  The chairs were quickly filled and for some, it became standing room only. “The attendance was a very pleasant and welcomed surprise. It is great to have folks visit the gallery to see and learn all the exciting happenings in our new arts district,” adds Director Charles Adams.

Camille Scioli McNamara, Lubbock’s own creative resources maven flawlessly and graciously hosted the evening’s event. Leading up to the reception, Camille donated countless hours promoting the event and the film. As an advocate and champion for film and video production across the state, Camille has always been a proud supporter of the arts and women filmmakers like herself. No doubt, it was this passion that made the evening such a success!

Also in attendance were Reaugh aficionados, author and historian Robert Reitz, and Texas Tech’s artist in residence Andy Wilkinson, to help answer questions after the preview. The crowd was also treated to live and original music by the film’s composer Curtis Peoples along with violinist Laura Jane Houle.

We can’t say thank you enough to Camille and Charles for a most memorable evening. Thanks to Robert, Andy, Curtis and Laura as well. And, thank you to all who attended and to those that have now become friends and supporters of the film’s mission! And special thanks to Jane Henry for hosting the preview at the following First Friday Art Trail in the LHUCA theatre.  We are hoping to be invited back to Lubbock in the near future to feature the entire film at LHUCA once it is completed.
