Exhibition: Paulina Peavy - "A Message to Paulina"
Paulina Peavy (b. 1901 Colorado Springs, Colorado; d. 1999, Bethesda, Maryland) was a prolific artist who worked across genres including painting, drawing, poetry, and film. Though formally trained in art and science, Peavy excused herself from the mainstream arts community after becoming a regular attendee at a weekly séance in 1932. At these gatherings, the artist was introduced to her spirit muse, Lacamo, who she came to collaborate with for the remainder of her life. Paulina Peavy: A Message to Paulina is the first exhibition to bring together a selection of Peavy's works across disciplines. Taken together, they express the artist's radical worldview and philosophy that humankind is evolving towards a single-sex species through contact with alien beings, or UFOs.
