Welcome to Opalka Gallery
Opalka Gallery is the formal exhibition facility of Russell Sage College. Located on the Albany campus, Opalka’s primary focus is on modern and contemporary art and design from nationally recognized artists. An important part of the cultural life in the Capital Region, the Gallery frequently hosts lectures, films, concerts, and other events in conjunction with its exhibitions.
We ask all visitors to consider that Opalka Gallery sits on the homelands of the Kanien’keháka and Muhheaconneok communities, two sovereign Indigenous nations who are the original stewards of these lands. This statement is not a formal land acknowledgment, which must be developed in cooperation with descendent communities. We encourage all visitors to educate themselves on these histories and to consider supporting the work of these nations. For more information please visit the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican Indians and the St. Régis and Akwesasne Mohawk communities.
For more information, see About the Gallery.
