Pauline Lim Solo Exhibition at the Armory Cafe
Anvil On My Head
March 3 – April 28, 2020

The Center for Arts at the Armory is proud to showcase the artwork of Pauline Lim in a solo exhibition entitled “Anvil On My Head.” Please join us for an exhibition reception on Sunday, March 15th from 4-5pm.

Pauline Lim is a local Somerville, MA artist living and working out of the Brickbottom Artist Building. As a self-described “fear-driven person”, Pauline taps into her fear and frustration to seek out color and beauty, as well as the relief of laughter alongside the recognition of despair. She explores themes of dreams and illness through a dark mirror of Medieval inspiration, warped scale and perspective, and a bold use of graphic color.

Pauline’s paintings are soul-searching expeditions into a bleak landscape full of zany alter egos that make us pause to think. As the artist says, “Basically, I just create paintings that I would want to see—that recognize the truth and folly of our existence, that are visually stimulating, perhaps gorgeous, frequently funny.”

All artwork in this show is available for purchase at the displayed price. The majority of proceeds from each sale go directly to the artist. To learn more about the work of artist Pauline Lim, please visit her website 


The mission of Arts at the Armory is to provide an inclusive and accessible venue for arts, cultural and community events, exhibitions, markets, classes and more.
