ACLS Colleagues:

Our usual schedule of providing webinars on the third Tuesday of the month is disrupted this month by the ACLS and LTP Virtual Workshop. Our January Webinar will be held January 28th at 1 p.m. ET/12 p.m. CT and 10 a.m. PT.

We are pleased to have as our presenter our fellow ACLS member artist Deborah Luke. The title of Deborah’s presentation is:
 “Do Something Beautiful for God, Reconciling the Artist’s Intuition with the needs of Liturgical Communities.”

Deborah, a sculptor, will share insights on providing her art to liturgical communities. The presentation will focus on the challenges of previous commissions, how these were navigated, and the lessons learned along the way. The webinar will use as a test case a particularly challenging project undertaken in 2011. Other more recent works since 2014 will also be shared.

Deborah Luke is a liturgical sculptor from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She studied sculpture at Dominican College in New Orleans with Angela Gregory in the early seventies. After many years doing portrait sculpture, she began sculpting images of Jesus and Mary, which led to a first church commission in 2000, providing stations of the cross. Deborah works in clay and casts her final work primarily in hydrostone and bronze.
