Time Out says

An artist, poet, actress and occultist, Marjorie Cameron Parsons Kimmel (1922-1995)—known simply as Cameron—was a pioneering figure of the Los Angeles art scene that emerged from the Southern Californian Beat culture of the 1940s and ’50s. She was a friend of and inspiration to key figures of the period such as Kenneth Anger, Wallace Berman and George Herms; in fact, the inclusion of Cameron’s erotic drawing, Peyote Vision, in Berman’s 1957 show at the legendary Ferus Gallery precipitated an infamous raid by the L.A. Vice Squad that became front-page news. Those years are recalled in this presentation of drawings by the artists ephemera related to her career.
