What do you get when you combine a determined woman, mountains, a camera, aluminum, a backpack, a tent, food, a piano, and art lovers?
Fabulous, of course!
We had some First Friday Fun on Friday, January 6, 2017, by temporarily rerouting the Appalachian Trail (AT) through the heart of Richmond, Virginia.
“Bringing the AT to RVA” is a glimpse of my journey on the Appalachian Trail as told through wilderness photographs. The exhibit opened on January 6th and will remain on view until January 31st.
The walls of the Gellman Room now whisper tales of 4 seasons along the oldest mountains on earth, the Appalachian Mountains. Images of wilderness lakes, mammoth boulders, gentle slopes of green fields, envelopes of orange leaves and entangled roots will greet you as you walk into the room.
At 2,189.2 miles long, the AT is the world’s most famous footpath. In 2014 I began my long-awaited thruhike.
I stopped often along the trail to look up and look around. Here is just a peak.
John Muir once said, “Out of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few are dirt.”
I wholeheartedly concur. Don’t forget to wipe the mud off of your boots at the door though!
Artwork will remain on view until January 31, 2017. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org for information and sales.
