Sarah Fonzi is a Buffalo based sculptor and designer. Frequently drawing upon common building materials such as plaster and metal, Fonzi borrows imagery from diverse sources such as ornament, architectural details, and various everyday objects but tends to skew these sources and their appearance through specific reworkings of material.

For her exhibition at Hallwalls, she will be working on a new, site-specific installation that draws upon and extends her sculptural explorations, playing with form, material, and scale.

Fonzi graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a concentration in Sculpture and a minor in Museum Studies (BFA 2008). Afterwards she worked for many years at the Griffis Sculpture Park and Essex Art Center in WNY.

Fonzi has been sculpting her whole life and continues to experiment with media and process. Since college, Sarah has exhibited in Atlanta, New York City, France, Buenos Aires, and Buffalo.

Most recently, she completed a public art commission for the downtown headquarters of Delaware North Corporation, organized by Resource Art, Buffalo.
