Author Lana Laws Downing was inspired by her mother’s stories of growing up in a remote Louisiana lumber camp in the 1920’s, and used the historic site as the setting for her book of short stories; photographs that capture a child’s spirit are used to match foster children with adoptive parents at the Heart Gallery; the whimsical structures by Patrick Dougherty are made of twigs and imagination.
