Artists Maria Szopinski and Lalo Garcia, have been commissioned to produce and restore artwork for the interior of St Lawrence Martyr. Maria is restoring the Bas Relief style statues. Bas Relief is a style in which the figures project slightly from the background (pictured below).
Lalo Garcia is doing several pieces that depict the “Communion of Saints” including, Mother Theresa, Mother Mary, St Lawrence Martyr, St. Kateri and more. These large scale portraits will be installed around the altar and predella. HABC recently visited Lalo Garcia in his studio and got a glimpse of the amazing progress. Stay tuned for final photos of this project.
