‘Americans’ by Ross Gordon

Photographer Ross Gordon might not be liked by the Trump administration after this exhibition. His latest series, “Americans,” of large format portraits of Muslim-Americans living in Kentucky is “intended to bridge gaps of cultural and religious misunderstandings,” he said. “Muslims are being painted as terrorists. They are just human beings.” The opening reception showcasing over 20 photographs is during the April 7 Republic Bank First Friday Hop beginning at 7 p.m. U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth and Mayor Greg Fischer are scheduled to appear.
