Through writings and artworks, siblings John and Leah Harper have created a magical and humorous exhibit drawn from diverging memories of shared childhood experiences.
Growing up in a family of little means, the Harpers did not have an abundance of material wealth. However, they did have a rich cultural background of California pioneer and Native American heritage. Active imaginations and childhood creativity more than made up for a lack of fancy toys, board games or television. John Harper notes: "We were a very large and religious family sharing an acre of land with our chickens, pigs, turkeys, ducks and at least one cow, not to mention the fruit trees, a vegetable garden and Mom's strawberry patch. It seemed to me we had everything."
This exhibition originated at the Redding Art Museum in 1998 and has traveled to the National John Steinbeck Center in Salinas, California, The Hermitage Museum in Nashville Tennessee and returned to Redding, California with an exhibition and lecture presentation at the Shasta College Art Gallery.
