Sister Alma Lopez

I stumbled across the work of Latina/Chicana Alma Lopez almost year ago while still toiling over the details of how terryhowcott.com would look and feel. All of the brilliant Alma Lopez’s work is remarkable, but this one moved me to no end. Her story is equally compelling as her work – this strong Latina Sister who was catapulted to unwanted attention after putting forth her own unique artistic expression of her spirituality in her piece “Our Lady,” (1999), and was wildly denigrated and ostracized in the process . . .See her depiction of a most prepared Latina.
