Diversity in The Creative Economy and The Instagram Aesthetic at the Opalka Gallery

40th Photo Regional Opalka Gallery 2018

The 40th Annual Photo Regional will also be on display through April 21.

Two events coming up at the Opalka Gallery that look interesting...

April 11: Diversity in The Creative Economy
It's the first an Open Forum series at the gallery. The event "will feature a discussion about diversity in the Capital Region's creative economy moderated by Ada Harper, creator of 518Blk.com. Confirmed panelists include Dale Davidson, owner of Umana Restaurant and Wine Bar, Ashleigh Kinsey, CEO of AK Design Digital Media Services & Consulting, Bhawin Suchak Executive Director of Youth FX, DJ Trumastr, founder of Beat*Shot Productions, and Hana van der Kolk, Troy-based touring choreographer and performance artist." Wednesday, April 11 at 6 pm -- free

April 21: Supper Club: The Instagram Aesthetic
It's a discussion about how social media is changing the art of photography + dinner. "Join us for delicious local cuisine as we ponder the role social media plays in the world of contemporary art. Gallery staff and artists from the Photo Regional exhibition will lead a conversation over cocktails and drinks provided by Tara Kitchen, owned by Sage alum Aneesa Waheed." (Space is limited and registration is required -- there's still space, as we confirmed with the gallery today.) Saturday, April 21 at 6 pm -- $35 / $65 for two

The Opalka Gallery is on the Sage Albany campus on New Scotland Ave, just up the street from Albany Med and Albany Law.

"Join us for delicious local cuisine as we ponder the role social media plays-" Hold on I have to Instagram my food. And hashtag that. And tag my friend who's sitting across the table from me. And, sorry what were you saying?

Say Something!

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.

... The theft itself of this important Native American artifact is an important part of its story. It's really a miracle that almost 70 years later that the Cornplanter pipe tomahawk ended up back at the State Museum, instead of remaining in someone's secret, private collection acquired illicitly, or even worse, not cared for professionally and therefore damaged, destroyed, or lost forever.
