La Fête de la Rentrée
You are cordially invited to join us on September 27 from 6 to 8 PM for our annual fall open house, la Fête de la Rentrée.
We will celebrate the new session of French classes and a new season of cultural events with a buffet, French wines and music and the opening of a new exhibition of watercolors by Dr. Larry Spitzberg.
Larry is an eye doctor here in Houston and is a colleague, friend and board member of Alliance Francaise. He and his wife Susan are total Francophiles and visit France yearly. This summer they helped France win the World Cup and participated in the Nice, France Bastille Day ceremonies. Larry takes photos in France of the daily life activities such as Market Days and Cafe Life and paints them upon his return to Houston.
Larry has won awards for his watercolor paintings. He loves to paint people and color in his watercolors. His works will be for sale at very VERY reasonable prices and all proceeds will go to Alliance Francaise.
There is no charge and all are invited to attend.
