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.

This week look for Fred Tschida, Professor of Glass Sculpture/Dimensional Studies at Alfred University in NY, in the Hot Shop.A longtime faculty artist at Pilchuck Glass School, Tschida returned this summer to teach a workshop on CASTING LIGHT….creating luminous objects.

Known for his conceptual use of neon, Tschida has taken the medium into open places and affixed it to moving creatures.In 1975 he harnessed 180 feet of neon tubing to a portable gas generator and with 28 friends walked this light line 4 miles - the longest neon tube ever to have crossed the Mississippi river.On the Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah, Tschida mounted a 22' tall neon column atop his car "to make light drawings."And, in his rotating neon works "Rotating Cone and Torus" and "Martini Glass" Tschida continues to put neon in places it hasn't been before, filling space with light, using light as a 3-dimensional material.
