Fred Tschida - Kinetic Neon Sculpture
The Arts Guild of Old Forge
is very proud to present an exhibition of kinetic neon sculptures by the founder and curator of the Museum of Luminous Phenomena
Tschida's work relies strongly on an interest in basic physical phenomenon and the inherent qualities of different materials, and his
work often inspires as many questions as it answers for both the artist and the viewer.
