Ancient Textures of the Sevier Orogeny
Viewpoint Photographic Art Center is pleased to present the exhibit Ancient Textures of the Sevier Orogeny by Ron Williams in its Step Up Gallery in June.
The Sevier Orogeny is a mountain-forming event that affected North America along the western slope of the Rocky Mountains during the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. Sevier refers to the Sevier River, whose headwaters originate in the Zion National Park region. Millions of years of tectonic action, erosion of carving rivers, volcanic episodes, and glacial scraping have created these fascinating surreal landscapes. “This body of work,” says photographer Ron Williams, “focuses on the hidden beauty in close-ups of textures in the geologic detail.” Very little photo manipulation was applied to these images shot along Highway 9 just east of the Mt. Carmel Tunnel in Zion National Park.
