y of you attended our first PechaKucha Night back in February, and we're doing it again!

But what is PechaKucha, you might ask? Simply put, PechaKucha is a global network of events that follows one simple rule: show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The slides advance automatically, so the presenter must keep pace. PechaKucha nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts -- just about anything, really.

Speakers for this PechaKucha Night will be Ken Ragsdale, Martin Hull, Mike Wagner, Chet Boehlke Jr, Scott Ian Berry, Amy Halloran, Dorothea Osborne, Danny Goodwin, Joanne Curran and Kate Cohen.

Check out this video of Brian Cirmo presenting at the first Opalka Gallery PechaKucha back in February.
