_________________________________________________________________________
The Hyde Art Gallery is thrilled to be presenting concurrent exhibitions of two innovative San Diego artists. Painter Gloria Muriel and ceramicist Cheryl Tall are each prolific in their own practice, producing large bodies of work that have been exhibited and collected nationally and internationally. Both are easily recognizable amongst the array of venerated San Diegan artists as a result of establishing unique visual languages.

Gloria Muriel, a native of Mexico and San Diego muralist, is known for her transcendental and supremely meditative painting practice. The artist, sometimes using the pseudonym “Glow”, derives her imagery from various mythologies to create stark portraits of wide-eyed figures floating in vibrant, organically-rendered environments. Drawing on her experience as a graphic designer, Gloria compels her viewers to step briefly out of their daily routines through mindful reflection by painting walls of contemplation that cause you to stop, look, and breathe.

Born in Mexico City and raised in Mexicali, Gloria studied graphic design at the Universidad Iberoamericana in Playas de Tijuana, before moving to San Diego in 2002. Gloria has been a supporter of Autism Tree Project Foundation since 2006, and has produced work for several causes including Sea Walls: Artists for Oceans and the Canyonlands Auburn Creek cleanup project. Her murals and collaborative street art installations can be found throughout the US and Mexico.

Cheryl Tall’s large, intricate ceramic pieces unite architectural and figurative imagery. Animals and edifices crown her symbolically adorned, life-sized forms - using windows as eyes and shingles as hair. Inspired by craft and folk art, Cheryl explores themes of domesticity, romance, and nostalgia, juxtaposing her affinity for objects of antiquity with references to modern popular culture. Using various glazing techniques, including terra sigillata, the artist produces unique dry, powdery surfaces that are richly complicated and show off the artist’s unique gestural style.

Born in New Jersey, Cheryl received a BA from the University of Central Florida and an MFA in ceramics and fine arts from the University of Miami. Since then she has been exhibited internationally at galleries, is in several museum collections, and has had her work featured in over 24 publications. Cheryl Tall currently works and resides in Encinitas, California.
