The Evening Lecture Series is free and open to the public. With inquiries, please contact Kara Carmack at kcarmack@nyss.org.

Father Paul Anel: Based in Brooklyn, Father Paul leads an exten­sive outreach pro­gram to the artist com­mu­nity, orga­nizing studio and gallery visits, art dis­cus­sions, and film screen­ings He was ordained a deacon in Brooklyn in 2009, and a priest in Toulon, France, in June 2010. As an expres­sion of his com­mit­ment to the artists, he cel­e­brated his first Mass in the Matisse Chapel.

Alain Kirili: New York-based sculptor recognized for his post-minimalist abstract sculptures in forged iron and large-scale public sculptures which draw inspiration from sources as diverse as Rodin, Giacometti and Barnett Newman to Indian symbolism, Italian Renaissance and Free Jazz. His work has been the subject of numerous gallery and museum exhibitions in America and Europe, and has received considerable critical interest from art historians.
