The Little Loomhouse likes giving the public the chance to meet local artists as well as get to know their historic facility. Once a month artists display their work and talk with anyone in attendance (Hey, they’ve been cooped up in the studio — this is an outing for them). The December featured artist is painter Kim Wathen Oliver. “Painting is a form of communication,” she states. “I am saying ‘Look. These things are important to me.’” Her painting inspirations are “the joy of infinite combinations of color from an array of squirted piles on the palette [and] the simple act of attempting to lay down all of these pieces of my perception that exist one at a time and all at once.”
