A Mention in the Review by KQED Arts:
After the After-Party: California College of the Arts 2013 MFA Show
By Mark Taylor on May 23, 2013 

"...The show begins with a pile of garbage, all the discards from the installation process gathered by Ilyse Iris Magy and presented in an effort to make the show a “zero waste” event. But this detritus keeps reappearing (smashed car safety glass in Lindsey Lyons’ mysterious installation, or photographed collections in Phillip Maisel’s Stacked series); the show is populated with whole worlds of stuff. It reminds me of a line from Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds wherein San Francisco is described as an anthill at the foot of a bridge. Many of the exhibits feel like they have been pieced together with bits found at some imaginary excavation site. These artists, these ants, have brought their individual nuggets back to the group and are wildly gesticulating, communicating through scent or the rubbing of antennae about what they have found. There are times when the CCA MFA show feels that primal."


A review by Curiously Direct on December 20, 2012:
"Southern Exposure//Point of No Return= Annual entry-fee-free juried exhibition, themed around loose interpretations of the titular theme. As usual, there are tons of included artists working in a wide mixture of media and scales. Though I had only a brief time with the show there were some definite standout pieces, including Jacob Wick's barricade tape, Joseph Thomas's bronzed broken ipod, and a small painting by Lindsey Lyons. That painting, a small blackish abstract was situated in what is a good illustration of some of what didn't work with the show. It was hidden in a large cluster of flat works put together to conserve space (?) which didn't make sense as a group; finding a middle ground between keen editing and inclusiveness is a challenge for any such exhibition, as is balancing inclusiveness and quality (there were some less than stellar paintings included in the show) But overall I've found these So Ex shows a consistently good place to see a large amount of relatively good art in one place and especially as a place to note what stands out amid the fray."
