Ninety years ago, in the midst of the roaring twenties, San Antonio printmaker Mary Bonner arrived in Paris to learn printmaking from French masters. From that moment onward, Bonner was inspired by the culture, people and landscape of France, at the same time producing very Texan works for her new French audiences. Villa Finale has assembled over 30 prints, watercolors and etchings of both Bonner and her French mentor, douard Lon for the exhibition Texas Meets Paris, which will open with fanfare on March 21, 2013. This exhibit is part of Villa Finales celebration of French Cultures Festival, a statewide observance led by the Consulat Gnral de France in Houston. Exhibition will be hosted at the Villa Finale Visitor Center, 122 Madison Street. Opening reception is free and open to the public.
