Glass is mesmerizing. Fluid in appearance but fragile in nature, this amorphous (or non-crystalline) solid could be described as a liquid that has lost the ability to flow. Its paradoxical nature perhaps explains its singular beauty.

Kangal’s show for the heart of the 2014 winter highlights the wondrous creations coming from the glass studio at the University of South Alabama, including faculty and students alike. Those with work on display include Rachel Wright, Matthew Patterson, Rene Culler, Andrew Lewis, Dain Peterson, Danielle Warner, David Wiss, Doug Haywick, Hannan Gold-Vukson, Isabel Kessler, Katie Martin, Kevin Landry, Lee Fox, Tera Smith and Tammy Reese.

An opening reception is planned for 5 – 9 p.m. during the Jan. 10 LoDa Artwalk.

Normal gallery hours are Tues.-Fri.., 10:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. and Sat.,10:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.  Open late Thursdays until 8 p.m. For more info, call 251-434-0330, email, or go to
