Local artist and poet Yasmin Sayyed will display her abstract paintings in the Foyer Gallery starting Jan. 9. Much of Sayyed’s professional life has been spent as an educator, researcher and psycho-educational therapist.

“The Contemporary Figure: Drawings by CSULB Art Department Faculty,” a group exhibition that highlights the figurative drawings of seven artists who teach at California State University, Long Beach, will appear in the Haldan Gallery Jan. 14 through March 18. The exhibit features classical drawing techniques combined with contemporary content. A talk with participating artist Yu Ji will be from 5 to 6 p.m. March 18 in the Aspen Room.
