Whether taking the word ‘surreal’ literally as Webster’s dictionary defines it, “marked by the intense irrational reality of a dream; also: unbelievable, fantastic” – or focusing on the prefix ‘sur’ which means ‘over’, ‘above’ or ‘in addition’ – it saturates this exhibit. Julie Belton and Marisa White create elaborately staged and crafted dreamlike tableaux demonstrating gifts for photography as well as digital manipulation. Taking photographs from the ultralight plane he pilots, Peter Stern captures the magical shapes and colors of the landscape hidden to those on the ground.
