Jeremiah Stermer has a poetic approach to imagery. His paintings have an aura of exquisite perfection. They present us with cautious order and delicate balance, both beautiful and conspicuously alien to life's temperamental unravelings. There is a seductively escapist quality to his work. It invites us to reverie and introspective musings. And like good poetry, Stermer's lucid images, spark the imagination and excite our curiosity to further investigation.

On display in the Art Program Gallery are over fifty of Stermer's canvases and drawings. Each work of art is skillfully crafted and reveals an artist whose sensibilities are aligned with the great tradition of exquisite realism. Taken as a whole however, the exhibit presents more than the deft clarity of representationism. Stermer's visual wit and mind play showcase a restless, surrealist energy; one that uses realism as a mere stepping stone to the transcendental world of the imagination.
