Administrative History

In 1908 Ella Peyton Dancy Dibrell bought the late artist Elisabet Ney’s studio, which Ney had established in 1892 and called Formosa, in order to preserve the property and sculptures. Dibrell signed an agreement with Ney's widower Edmund D. Montgomery fulfilling his wishes to give the Ney sculpture collection to the University of Texas provided it remain kept and cared for at the studio. On April 6, 1911, the Texas Fine Arts Association (TFAA) was founded at Formosa with the intention to preserve the work and studio of Elisabet Ney, to promote Texas artists, and to exhibit contemporary art in Texas.

Governed by a board of directors and officers, TFAA comprised a chapter-designated membership involved in the planning and implementing of exhibits, literary productions, fund-raising activities and social events. Administered by a president, vice president, treasurer, and secretary, it was headquartered in Austin, Texas. The first officers were James W. McClendon, President; Joseph D. Sayers, Sidney E. Mezes, and Joseph B. Dibrell, Vice Presidents; Mary Mitchell, Secretary; Laura Driskill, Assistant Secretary; and Julia Pease, Treasurer.

The charter for the Texas Fine Arts Association Holding Company was established on May 18, 1929, in order to receive the Elisabet Ney Museum from the Dibrells. In 1941 TFAA deeded the Ney Museum to the City of Austin as a result of management failure due to financial difficulties. It is now overseen by the City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department.

Laguna Gloria, a Mediterranean style villa built on land that once served as Stephen F. Austin’s home, was the residence of Clara Driscoll and Henry H. Sevier until 1929. In 1943 Clara Driscoll deeded her property to the TFAA Holding Company. In 1961 Laguna Gloria, Inc. was created as a separate chapter of TFAA thereby assuming operation of the Laguna Gloria Museum.

Judge James W. McClendon, the first president of TFAA, served three non-consecutive terms, from 1911-1917, 1928-1932, and 1937-1938. Ella Peyton Dancy Dibrell, who deeded property to the TFAA, served as the second president from 1917-1920. Lucille Edgar Weller served as Program Chairman from 1949-1952, Vice President from 1952-1953, Director of Circuits from 1953-1970, Executive Secretary from 1965-1969, and later as President from 1973-1975.

Other noteworthy persons who served as President were Dr. William J. Battle (1920-1928), Rev. Harris Masterson (1932-1934), and James Chillman, Jr. (1934-1937). Also responsible for the affairs and operation of the association were the Executive, Financial, Advisory, Archives and History Committees, who established and supervised the activities of subordinate committees.

Scope and Contents

The records in the collection document the Texas Fine Arts Association (TFAA), and its promotion of the arts in Texas through exhibits, organization of local chapters statewide, and development of the Elisabet Ney and Laguna Gloria art museums in Austin, Texas. Correspondence, constitutions, property deeds, board minutes, financial documents, membership lists, printed materials, and literary productions are documented in the History and Development series. TFAA administration is more thoroughly documented than creative work of member artists.

Records are from the files of Judge James W. McClendon, charter member and first TFAA president, who handled most of the association’s legal affairs up through the 1960s; and from Lucille Edgar Weller, Director of Circuit Exhibits from 1961-1970, and President from 1973-1975. Judge McClendon’s exchanges with other TFAA officers and board members, benefactors, lawyers, and bankers concerning TFAA’s legal and financial concerns constitute a majority of the correspondence. Weller communicated with TFAA chapter officers and regional trustees, besides district representatives and artists involved in circuit exhibits.

TFAA constitutions extending from 1911-1974 are accompanied by McClendon’s revisions and notes. Financial documents are not complete chronologically, however include a range of types, in addition to deeds to the Lucille Edgar Weller Trust and the Elisabet Ney, Texas Fine Arts Association, McClendon Foundation. Board of Directors and Executive Committee meetings from 1933-1971 are substantially documented, while activities of standing committees are represented sporadically.

Programs and exhibitions are documented from 1915-1980 through brochures and announcements and include some of the TFAA’s more notable events, such as the Spring Jury exhibition, the Arts and Crafts Fair, and the Fall Membership exhibition. There is a small amount of material documenting the Lorado Taft lecture tour in 1915 and brochures and information on an art pilgrimage with Taft in 1932. Personal correspondence and materials of James W. McClendon are also documented in this series along with his literary productions. About .2 linear feet of newspaper clippings from 1952-1975 about TFAA, Laguna Gloria, and the Elisabet Ney Museum are also contained in this series.

The Elisabet Ney Museum series documents the Elisabet Ney Museum from 1892-1973 and includes land deeds and legal correspondence documenting property transfers from 1848-1972, the University of Texas 1910 deed to the museum’s collection of Ney sculpture, and Ella Dancy Dibrell’s 1914 will. Correspondence reflects TFAA’s early interest in promoting Elisabet Ney as a major historic artistic figure. Literary productions of note are a typescript and correspondence regarding Henry B. Diehlmann’s “Elisabet Ney, Sculptor”, and Ellen Garfield’s “Elisabet Ney in the Courtroom” (includes a Photostat copy of an 1898 letter from Edmund Montgomery to Elisabet Ney). Legal status of Ney’s sculpture “Lady Macbeth”, and acquisition of Adrian Lamb’s portrait of Elisabet Ney are both well documented. Also of note are 10 black-and-white photographs of Mrs. J. W. Rutland’s retirement party in June 1967, Lamb’s portrait of Ney, various sculptures by Ney, and images of the Ney property and studio. Mrs. J. W. Rutland was the curator of the Elisabet Ney Museum for 38 years. Two architectural drawings of a bridge design for Ney’s studio by landscape architect Jac. L. Gubbels are also part of the series.

Records spanning 1925-1981 from the Laguna Gloria Art Museum series substantially document Clara Driscoll’s bequest of the museum property to TFAA in 1943, through property deeds and correspondence with Clara Driscoll. Specific events related to property development and a 1965 plan of merger between TFAA and Laguna Gloria, Inc. are also well documented. Documentation of board meetings, financial affairs, and Program Committee activities is limited to short time spans. Annual schedules of events and printed announcements represent exhibits and other programs every year from 1956-1982. There are also 50 color photographs of paintings that were shown at Laguna Gloria in the 1972 Central Texas Exhibit. Additionally, there are Laguna Gloria Women’s Art Guild yearbooks from 1975-1984.

The Circuit Exhibits series is the largest series in the collection, dating from 1955-1956 and comprising over 3 linear feet. This series documents the TFAA circuit exhibits, including the insurance information, itineraries and lists of paintings for each circuit. Some of the later circuit exhibits contain less documentation, primarily 1970-1974. There is about .8 linear feet of correspondence with artists who exhibited their work in the circuit exhibits from 1956-1971. Biographical data sheets that artists were required to submit for the circuit exhibit comprise approximately 1 linear foot and span 1951-1969. These have been kept in the original order received, which is primarily alphabetical, though some of the organization appears to have been stopped and restarted creating some overlap.

The final series, Personal – Lucille Edgar Weller, contains Weller’s collected materials, largely mailers from organizations and galleries she was affiliated with or was subscribed to mailing lists for, dating largely from 1969-1983, however there are a few items that date from 1929-1936. These organizations include Austin Heritage Society, Austin Arts Council, and the University Art Museum at the University of Texas at Austin. There is also a small amount of personal correspondence dating from 1966-1980 as well as her personal filing notes for the Texas Fine Arts Association materials.
