The photographers exhibited in "Effects That Aren't Special" draw empathy through editing. The exhibit is based on the belief that photography can pull the viewer into unfamiliar worlds and make them feel for people they've never met. With blurring techniques, discoloration, and other Photoshop effects, the 15 artists create a wide range of distortions that are closer to reality than they seem. Curated by artist, wiseguy, and Bard College photography professor Tim Davis, the exhibit features work from several local artists, including Chad Kleitsch of Rhinebeck, Seth David Rubin of Stone Ridge, and Parker Shipp of Hudson. "Effects That Aren't Special" is on display at The Sage Colleges' Opalka Gallery in Albany now through April 21 as the gallery's 40th Annual Photo Regional exhibition. (518) 292-7742.
