The Longview Museum of Fine Arts celebrated its 60th anniversary during its annual costume party — Monster’s Ball: Magic and Mayhem 2018, held on Oct. 27, at the Summit Club.
The sold-out fundraiser featured dinner, dancing, a costume contest and auctions. Also, event chairs Darren and Niki Groce added a new element to this year’s ball — a tequila tasting that featured Tequila Fortaleza, a distillery in Mexico that has been in the Sauza family for five generations.
The Longview Museum of Fine Arts’ next exhibit is “2019 Focus on Photography — A Juried Exhibition,” Jan. 12 to Feb. 16. The exhibition sought entries from regional photographers, with well-known local photographer and author O. Rufus Lovett as curator and judge. Winners will be recognized during the opening reception, at 6 p.m. Jan. 12.
