Archway Gallery presents Orogenesis featuring digital photo paintings by member artist Larry Garmezy. The exhibit will be on view June 1 through July 10, 2013.
The artist will be on hand to visit with guests during the exhibition opening reception on Saturday, June 1 from 5 – 8 pm at the gallery and will talk about his work at 6:30 pm.
Orogenesis refers to the immense forces within the Earth that create remarkable yet ephemeral
mountains. Garmezy has always been captivated by mountain landscapes and the elemental
forces that both build them and subsequently carve them into the shapes, patterns, and textures surrounding us. Mountains, once formed, are constantly modified by ice and snow, wind and rain. A fusion of forces, weathering, and time, uniquely marks each landscape. Orogenesis is his first solo exhibition and is significant to the artist because it marks the 30 year anniversary of his career as a geologist with Shell Oil.
