LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 3.19 101 Stewart has had about five exhibitions since her first art show, in 2016 at the California Community Center in west Louisville. In 2017, she started a nonprofit called Adah School of Art, which takes her to different organizations and community centers to lead workshops for kids. She recently got a full scholarship to the Kentucky College of Art + Design, in Old Louisville. Her artist statement reads, in part: "Behind every single artwork, there are generations of people that have been affected by the loss of their loved ones and are in need of healing. I seek to humanize the people represented in this exhibition and to raise awareness about a topic that people find uncomfortable to talk about." Stewart will spend many hours a week painting after coming home from her part-time job at the Louisville Urban League. "Some days I don't go to sleep," she says. "is is my favorite place. I love these people so much, and they give me motivation."
