About Artist:

Seattle-born artist Don Paulson (1933-2012) was a painter in the Pop Art style, sometimes using the pseudonym "Whitey Boom." His work is in the collections at the Seattle Art Museum, the Anchorage Art Museum, the City of Seattle, the University of Washington and several corporate and private collections.

In 1960s New York, he was involved with Andy Warhol's Factory and attended the first public performance by the Velvet Underground. Discovering the light show scene upon his return to Seattle in 1966, he founded the "Lux Sit and Dance." This collective used projectors, fog machines, prisms, colored liquids, and other paraphernalia to create their light effects, and worked with bands like Jefferson Airplane, the Grateful Dead, and the Byrds.?

Paulson was also an active member of E.A.T. (Experiments in Art and Technology), an organization that supported art-science collaborations and encouraged artists to explore new technologies. E.A.T. spawned many of Seattle's early avant-garde film makers.

Don was an accomplished artist, but he is maybe best be remembered for his book, "An Evening at the Garden of Allah," published in 1996 by Columbia University Press and co-written by Roger Simpson with whom he taught Communications at the University of Washington.?

Paulson, who discovered he was gay at an early age, was an authority on the gay and lesbian underground scene in Seattle, often contributing to the Seattle Gay News.?

"An Evening in the Garden of Allah" is an exuberant and fascinating portrait of a little explored chapter in America's gay and lesbian past. It chronicles of the lives of those who lived the life surrounding that gay cabaret of the same name in Seattle from 1946 to 1956. It has become a classic.?

This painting entitled "Dancing in the Light" painted while he was still researching and writing the book, is part of the legacy of one of the LGBTQA movement's leading activists, artists and writers.
