Nalani Latrish Williams is a sculptor and installation artist whose material vocabulary ranges from the classical (bronze) to the non-traditional (latex and hair). Her training in bronze casting, drawing, mural techniques, sculpture, and media have allowed her diverse opportunities to create and showcase her work. Nalani’s work has been exhibited at Buffalo Arts studios, Albright Knox Collector’s gallery, El Museo of Buffalo NY, and Greenpoint Gallery in Brooklyn, New York. Nalani is the recipient of the 2006 Curators Choice award from Albright Knox Collector’s gallery and the 2005 International Cast Iron Art Symposium Purchase Award, Pirkkala, Finland.
Nalani received an MFA in Studio Art from Stony Brook University and a BFA in Sculpture from Buffalo State. She has since begun teaching youth and college level courses on two and three dimensional art.
Recently, Nalani branched out into bead making. Working primarily with glass, each of these tiny works of art reflects Nalani’s training in sculpture.
Nalani lives in New York City and works as a teaching artist, website designer for other artists, and video jockey.
