PRINTED IN SAN ANTONIO
Mary Bonner, a friend of Marion Koogler McNay, was an active San Antonio etcher in the 1920s and ‘30s. Three prints drawn on the patio of the McNay residence are on view along with one of Bonner’s rare copper etching plates. The exhibition also features a group of works by Bill Reily who taught art at Incarnate Word College (now the University of the Incarnate Word) for nearly 40 years. His prints, inspired by Paul Klee and Pablo Picasso, are among the most significant modernist graphic works created in Texas in the mid-20th century.
Preserving this printmaking tradition into the 21st century, the McNay’s growing collection of contemporary prints includes works by San Antonio artists Nate Cassie, Janet Flohr, Jon Lee, Kent Rush, and Ethel Shipton. Some of these recent acquisitions appear for the first time at the McNay in this exhibition.
