Also featuring the work of painter Jeremy Herndl, the "Figuring Ground" exhibit explores landscapes of Surrey and its region.

19th Century Trains in 3D
The new exhibit "Double Exposure: Photography and the Transcontinental Railroad" starts on September 14, 2013 in Sacramento, California capital city. The exhibition examines the emergence of stereoscopic photography and the ways in which railroads used the new medium during the construction of America's First Transcontinental Railroad. Ultimately, the technology of photography not only helped to tell the story, but also helped to shape public perception and foster acceptance for this massive endeavor that encouraged westward travel and settlement.
Works by photographers Andrew J. Russell, Alfred A. Hart and others will be on display and guests will be able to view many of these using stereoscopes and stereopticons.
