In the third of four segments on the Strecker family of artists, we meet Harrodsburgs Zoé Strecker, who uses a variety of media to construct her concept-driven sculptures. These public pieces, such as a 20-foot-tall copper and terra cotta sculpture depicting Plains Indian sign language, have found homes as far away as Fairbanks, Alaska.
Next is another sculptor: Lexington woodworker Philip Hultgren, who creates stunning bowls, furniture, and statuary. His mahogany bowls are hardly tableware, though. Rather, they are large-scale, sculptural pieces, more ceremonial than utilitarian. To preserve the essential qualities of the wood with which he works, Philip has developed many of his own woodworking tools and techniques, which he puts to work during our visit to his studio.
Meanwhile, in the Mixed Media studio, Louisvilles Ochion Jewell Quartet performs, led by 25-year-old tenor saxophonist Ochion Jewell. A native of southeastern Kentucky, Ochion now lives in Louisville, where he also plays with the funk group V-GROOVE. His debut album, Still Life, is a mix of traditional and modern jazz sounds, inspired by Latin, funk, and classical music and played by a standard jazz quartet.
