Dawn on Whitney Summit - Faith Rumm
River Center Art Exhibit: Faith Rumm Walking in Muir's Light

The current River Center art exhibit features California artist Faith Rumm and selected pieces from her John Muir Trail 100 Paintings Project. 

Faith has completed four "thru-hikes" of the John Muir Trail, and countless section hikes. 

"My romance with the JMT began as a child when my parents spent their hard-earned vacations undertaking backpack trips in the Sierra Nevada. As a family we covered much of the JMT as well as many of the peripheral trails. These trips set the stage for me as an artist later in life wanting to capture the wonderful "Range of Light" scenes and details through which the JMT meanders." - Faith Rumm

You can view the exhibit during normal Ranch House open hours, Saturdays and Sundays, from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. The exhibit will be on display through April.
