Cynthia Myron’s work explores the physicality and emotional weight of constructed spaces, particularly the home. Working first in carved wax, she casts elements in pewter which are added to her illustrations to create “three-dimensional drawings.” These hand-drawn illustrations layered on top of vintage blueprints and architectural plans, allow her to connect the fleeting moments of nature with the permanence of architecture as a symbol of safety and shelter.
Myron is a professional artist working in Richmond, VA. She received her BFA in Sculpture from Marywood University (1998), her MFA in Metalsmithing from Virginia Commonwealth University (2004), and is currently the Assistant Chair for the Craft and Material Studies Department at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCUarts). She is the recipient of two Individual Creative Artist Fellowships from The Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. Her work has been shown nationally at venues including The Taubman Museum of Art, Rawls Museum Art, Bowling Green State University, Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art, Chelsea Center for the Arts in New York, Facere Art Gallery in Seattle, and the Florida International Museum.
She will have “office hours” at The Branch Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday each week from noon – 4pm. Stop by and see what she’s up to!
