Artist: Nikki Sardelli

Artist Talk & Reception: November 17 | 5pm | Tahoe Gallery

Nikki Sardelli grew up in Killington, Vermont. She works in sculpture, using natural materials and clay as her main medium. Her work is inspired by nature and identity. Nikki strives to instill on others the wonder she finds in experiencing everyday life.

Sticks and Stones is an exhibition exploring the interconnection between human and nature. Nikki alters natural materials she scavenges for in the forest, creating objects that intertwine her own sense of self with the inexplicable power found in the outdoors. Her work meditates on shifting moods and surroundings. It explores what is precious and requests the viewer to question their own connection and perception of the world they exist in. What does it mean for something to be sacred? Nikki’s work challenges the notions of nature being something separate from humanity.
