First Fridays at HDV | Charon's Pantheon at La Luz de Jesus

Hotel De Ville will be open late this evening for the First Friday Art Walk in Los Feliz. Stop by Bar Covell for a glass of wine, and check out opening night across the street at La Luz de Jesus for this new exhibition by Myron Conan Dyal & Jennifer Logan:

CHARON'S PANTHEON | Opening Reception & Book Release: Friday, February 4th; 8-11 PM

Myron Dyal is a modern mystic, a classically trained musician, and a self-taught Southern California artist. He has spiritual visions connected to Temporal Lobe Epilepsy that are the catalysts for the vast oeuvre of his work that spans nearly three decades. His figurative and organic forms are derived from visions he experiences during epileptic seizures and from self-induced trances he encounters on the spiritual journey.

has been with Myron ever since his "second birth," as he terms it; a three-month coma at the age of four from which emerged a lifetime of visionary experiences. Charon has been his spiritual mother, father, friend and guide. He is the unifying factor in Myron's life and has been the primal factor in his healing process. Charon acts as a counterbalance to the dark forces, often times restraining them to allow Dyal's consciousness to recover from their ravages.

While developing the concepts for this show, composer and friend Dr. Jennifer Logan developed an aural counterpart for Myron's creations. Each composition is an harmonic and transcendental representative of each goddess within the pantheon.

On View at La Luz De Jesus through February 27, 2011
