Funded by a Lenfest grant from Washington and Lee University, this expansive and intricate work was created specifically in response to the Medicine Factory’s exhibition space and the traces of history and use on its walls. Covering the five walls of the gallery, Lyle’s drawing conjures an atmosphere reminiscent of constellations and maps, while the drips of old paint and nail holes reiterate the Medicine Factory’s current purpose as a working artists’ studio.

She was the recipient of a 2011 Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Professional Fellowship and was a fellow at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts in 2009 and 2011.
