Through March 27: The Headley-Whitney Museum features an exhibition of paintings by Shirley Ardell Mason who gained international attention following the publication of Flora Schreiber’s book about her life using the pseudonym “Sybil” and the movies of the same name.

Horribly abused by her mother when she was a child, Mason’s mind protected her by creating dissociative identities or “personalities.” Working with Dr. Cornelia Wilbur for 11 years, Shirley was able to identify 16 different “personalities” and integrate them to allow her to remember and heal.  Always an artist Mason used art to express herself and some of her “other selves” too.
