WHAT: Noel Sardalla ’14 is one of eight installation artists in “About Paper,” an exhibit at The Institute Library in New Haven.

WHO: Sardalla is a recipient of a 2012 Artist Fellowship from the Connecticut Office of the Arts, part of the state Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD), and a specialist working in UNH’s Office of Communications and Public Affairs.

His monofilament nets of botanical multiples are site-adaptive and mimic swarm behavior. Elements may roam in any direction yet stay contained within a matrix structure to evoke colonies, cloud networks and galaxies.

Sardalla's sculptures, installations, collages and graphic design pieces have been displayed in galleries and in private collections throughout the Hartford and greater New Haven area.

WHEN:  Nov. 17 – Dec. 15. Hours are Monday-Friday 10:00am-6:00pm; Saturday, 11:00am-2:00pm.  This exhibit is free and open to the public. 

There will be an artists' talk on Dec. 13 at 5:30pm.          

WHERE: The Institute Library (847 Chapel Street, New Haven) was founded in 1826. It is New Haven's oldest independent circulating library and one of the last remaining membership libraries in North America.
