ALBANY, NY – The Opalka Gallery, located on the Sage College of Albany campus, will host the 34th Annual Photography Regional beginning March 12. The exhibition includes the work of 12 local artists, selected by curator Danny Goodwin

"Photography is a science, an art form, a cultural and historical phenomenon, a philosophical trajectory and, at the fringes of conservative practice, suspiciously like a religion,” said Goodwin, chair of the Art Department and associate professor at University at Albany. “I appreciate this opportunity to showcase what I feel is important regional work and I look forward to the conversations and ruminations elicited."

All of the photographers involved in this year’s exhibition live within 80 miles of Albany, a stipulation implemented by Goodwin. The exhibiting artists include: Justin Baker, Tim Davis, Barbara Ess, Tara Fracalossi, Kyra Garrigue, William Jaeger, Nicholas Kahn, Carlos Loret de Mola, Margaret Saliske, Robert Selesnick,  Georgia Wohnsen and Allen Yates.

A panel presentation featuring some of the artists will be held on Sunday, April 15 at 5 p.m. at Opalka.
