A new exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International shares the stories of Jewish communities in China over millennia. These stories intrigued Pearl S. Buck and her husband Richard Walsh so much that each explored them in their published works. Ms. Buck wrote the novel "Peony" and the play "Flight into China" on the subject. Mr. Walsh included scholarly articles Show More...about the topic in his publication, "Asia" magazine.

Jews settled in China as tradespeople on the silk road. They had strong communities and became part of society. One of the largest communities was in K'aifeng. A stele (stone tablet) commemorates the construction of a synagogue there in 1163, but by the 1850s there were only remnants of the building standing and most families had assimilated.

Part of the exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International is a retelling, through words and photos, of one Jewish family's flight from Nazi Germany into China. Packed in the luggage was a copy of "The Good Earth" which descendants presume was carried so far in order to become part of a lending library established during their stay in China.


Exhibit Hours:
Mon-Fri 8:30 to 5:00
Saturday 10:30 to 3:00
Sunday 12:30 to 3:00
Admission to the Exhibit Gallery is complimentary.

"My fascination with painting the figure in natural settings has never waned. It is the human story on
God's stage. Nothing seems more important when we are appreciating it. 'Red Shale Pool' is the
story of my son at a particular stage in his life and in our relationship. It's a beautiful relationship; it
is our story." Harrington's natural Show More...landscapes show the range of his style: "Red Shale Pool" is
dynamically painted, with bold and artificial blues and greens, while "Rocks" is naturalistic,
balanced, and stoic. Describing "Red Shale Pool," Harrington writes, "My high school English
teacher emphasized the idea that our individual stories were worth writing about. It's hard to
understand that when you're young and seemingly unimportant, yet as we gain worldly experience
we realize how special our stories truly are." - (from Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine, 2014). ...Show Less
