‘Strength in Three’

Alexis Brown, Sandra Charles and Lindsey Windland participated in the Kentucky Foundation for Women’s Hopscotch House Summer Residency program in 2017, working on their art coupled with KFW’s focus on social change. “The Purpose Tree” a story about “women warriors, male healers and a young boy who carries the future of his people within his decision to pursue his purpose,” Brown said. Charles concentrated on her “African Queen” series, portraying women “unknown to most of the western world, but their contributions to history shaped both the nations of Africa and the rest of the world.” Windland is angry about the war against women’s reproductive rights in Kentucky, especially the lack of abortion clinics. “My hope is that by highlighting the dangerous and often deadly ways in which women have taken matters into their hands in the past,” she said, “I will help others to see this need too.” The opening is Friday, Feb. 2 from 6-9 p.m.
