Primordial Images of a Modern Mystic- Myron Conan Dyal
Exhibition in the Main Gallery
CSUF Grand Central Art Center
unveils the first solo exhibition by self-taught Southern California-based artist Myron Conan Dyal. Primordial Images of a Modern Mystic features 18 paintings, 12 drawings and 20 sculptures from Dyal’s vast oeuvre spanning nearly three decades. His imagery is overwhelmingly dark and haunting and obviously created with obsession and compulsion: he uses papier-mâché to create his sculpture, in large part, because its immediacy accommodates his urgency to see his objects in three-dimensional form. Usually figurative or organic, the forms are derived from visions he experienced during epileptic seizures and self-induced trances he encountered on his spiritual journey to come to grips with his lifelong struggle with epilepsy and its stigma. A classically trained musician and telecommunications executive, Dyal kept his prolific production of art secret for many years—only showing it to family and a few close friends until recently.

Handmade Puppet Dreams
, the creative artists network presented by Heather Henson, daughter of legendary puppeteer Jim Henson is a catalog comprised of more than twenty artists and filmmakers dedicated to conveying contemporary artistic concerns through the art of puppetry.  This legendary exhibition features a selection of short films by independent artists exploring their handmade craft through the medium of film, as well as a display of the sculptural puppets.
 
Drawn to Gravity
Exhibition featured in the R&S Gallery
Zachary Kleyn, Jennifer Celio and Naoe Suzuki
The exhibition Drawn to Gravity points to a curiosity of ideas and experimentation, triggered by the direct process of drawing.  Urban environments inspire Jennifer Celio’s meticulously rendered graphite drawings on panel. Celio illustrates not only the passing of time but also a process of change. Zachary Kleyn’s new drawings and sculptures question specific ways in which we navigate through life. The drawings, transparent and opaque, geometric and organic, do not follow normal rules of nature but instead act as metaphors to link disparate images and ideas. Kleyn will also exhibit a selection of new sculptures tangibly depicting seemingly impossible circumstances.  The inspiration for the intricate and multi-layered drawings of Naoe Suzuki comes from medical dictionaries, journals, textbooks and catalogs. In her current work, Suzuki references art history, religious iconography, fashion and plant forms. These diverse and vague influences are pushed together to form quirky, yet delicate and poetic compositions.
