It has been more than a decade since Debbie Wells moved to Plainview to raise her family and pursue her passion for art. This week brought Wells her latest milestone when she was elected vice chair of the Art League of Long Island’s Board of Trustees.
“I love the Art League for so many reasons,” said Wells, a graduate of Parsons School of Design and established artist. “It’s close. It’s a great place and I want to do everything I can to make it even better.”

Standing on stage at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn. in late November, Lisa Matassa was wrapping up rehearsals for her part in a tribute to country music great George Jones.
She was to sing part of a medley on the Jones classic, “The Love in Your Eyes” with a few other artists when she received a special request from a noteworthy person. Nancy Jones, the late country singer’s wife, asked the Plainview resident to wrap her voice around “Walk Through This World With Me.”
