PechaKucha returns to the Opalka Gallery

Opalka Gallery Sage Albany exterior 2016The local PechaKucha series is returning to the Opalka Gallery on the Sage Albany campus February 10. The lineup:

+ Jill Adams: "My writing practice helped me when my mother died."
+ Shawn Allan
+ John Chaplin: "Building in Wood"
+ Michael Chrisner
+ David Hochfelder & Ann Pfau: "98 Acres in Albany"
+ Natasha Holmes on her art
+ Jim MacNaughton & Nate Wilson, on their experiences of seeing the band DISCHARGE on their disastrous 1986 tour
+ Libby Post:"Advocacy: Now More than Ever"
+ Dan Smith
+ Joe Ullman
+ Lisa Vines on her collection of shopping lists
+ Charmaine Wijeyesinghe: "Looking at the How of Racial Identity"

PechaKucha? It's a format in which the speaker gets to talk along with 20 slides, each slide only on display for 20 seconds. (Each talk is just short of 7 minutes total.) So, it moves quickly and it forces people to get right to the point.

The event is Friday, February 10, snacks at 6:30 pm, talks start at 7 pm. It's free and open to the public.

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
