"A documentary photographer with a surreal touch, Sarah Anne Johnson returns to this gallery for her sixth solo effort. Presenting pictures shot at music festivals that are then digitally manipulated, painted and sprinkled with glitter, the artist offers a psychedelic vision of the people and objects populating these counterculture events, rather than the participating musical acts. Pink Forest captures three young men, walking nude into a magical realm; Painted Ladies portrays a hedonistic group of imaginatively masked women; and Uck depicts a collapsed sign atop a pile of hay that Ms. Johnson has trippily transformed with glitter. If you missed Woodstock—which, undoubtedly, most of us did—“Field Trip” might be the next best thing."
