The Hammie Salon  is featuring the paintings of Kate Petty. The artist explains, “I work with the concept of liminality. It is a state that is ambiguous and hidden. In the subliminal, things are unconscious. But liminal is barely perceptible; it’s a state of being in-between. Sometimes boundaries between worlds are well defined; but liminal suggests a spaciousness, often hazy, like the transition from dreaming to wakefulness or dark to light. It is like twilight.”
