Artist's Talk with Kristy Summers and Nikki MoserCome join us for our first Artist's Talk of the year. We will be welcoming two sculptors who are new to the area to discuss their work and their process.Nikki Moser is a sculptor, fascinated by systems. Her work has manifested
itself in cast iron, printmaking, photography, mixed media, video and sound.
Driven by a desire to assemble objects and ideas in ways that recast light,
propose an alternate dialog and subtly implicate the viewer, her media
corresponds intimately to the concepts. In 2010 she co-founded Keystone
Iron Works, an Iron Casting program for at risk high school students, which
has been awarded two National Endowment for the Arts awards. She regularly
exhibits her work and has sculptures in many private collections. She sews,
likes playing with fire and makes excellent chocolate chip cookies.
