Passages and New Dimensions A Culmination of Glass Sculptures from Chad Holliday

Glass artist Chad Holliday thinks he's cracked the sixth dimension in his latest works. Yes, the sixth. Holliday, an assistant professor of art at West Texas A&M University, will show off the last five years' worth of his work in a show opening Friday at Process Art House, 700 S. Van Buren St.
An opening reception kicks off at 7 p.m. "Passages and New Dimensions: A Culmination of Glass Sculptures from Chad Holliday," which runs through June 11, is an "exploration into extra dimensions," Holliday said. Sculptures, naturally, deal in three dimensions, and the fourth dimension - time - is equally important to the works, Holliday said. But in these works, he's working with interior dimensions in his solid glass castings - what he calls his fifth dimension - and then adding facets to the glass to move light from the inside out - his sixth dimension. "In a sense, it's kind of sculpting with light as the primary medium," Holliday said. "It's more about the essence of the form and trying to give the viewer as much information as possible with as little information as possible - maximizing the potential of the form, basically." "Chad has brought a new energy and conceptual methodology to the sculpture program at WT," gallery owner Jacob Breeden said. "We are proud to feature the amazing diversity represented by his body of work here."
