Creative Economy Mixer at Opalka Gallery

Our March 2019 our ACE #CreativeEconomyMixer was at Opalka Gallery on The Sage College of Albany’s Campus. We saw screenings of amazing Capital Region film projects in the gallery’s Screening Room, including “Safehouse” by Micah Khan of Golden Horde Films and “Zebra” by Lisa M. Thomas of Thin Edge Films. Sam Margolius shared a “behind the scenes” breakdown of a video-enhanced by special effects by visual effects house Branch VFX.

A short tasting menu was featured by Albany-based restaurant UMANA — “Meeting Place for all People” and Druthers Brewing offered a beverage tasting at the event.

In addition to the films, food and drink we also toured the “In Place of Now” Afrofuturism exhibit with co-curator Judie Gilmore.
