During COVID-19, Small Mall is committed to bringing you quality arts programming through the self-quarantines and stay-at-home orders. We'll be bringing our Tiny Talks series to your home with our Living Room Sessions until we can all see each other again. We've invited our favorite artists and makers from the shop to give artist talks and workshops.

We'll be hosting these talks through Zoom, a video conference platform that can host multiple users within one chat together. A Small Mall staff member will moderate the conversation with the featured artist. Participants will have the opportunity to ask their own questions during these talks as well. All Zoom events will be private, and we'll be collecting your emails through the forms below to send you invite links.

Living Room Sessions will be pay-what-you-can between $5-20 to sign up, with the exception of the Small Mall x PGH Photo Fair talks, which will be FREE. Proceeds will go to Small Mall staff and the artists to help them through this crisis. Check out who's up on the roster and sign up for one (or more) below!

​Tiny Talk with Ali Karsh

Saturday, July 18th, 8pm

$5-$20 suggested donation

Small Mall artist Ali Karsh will be joining us for a Tiny Talk and

Collage Workshop! Ali will be chatting briefly about her practice and

how collaging continues to find its way back into her work. This event

duals as a collage workshop that Ali will be leading where guests

can collage with her.

Collage supplies are open-ended, but guests and encouraged to use some glue (glue stick, tape, Elmer's), paper (scraps, newspaper, magazines, love notes, photos), and cutting utensils (scissors, X-ACTO, paper punches) are a good place to start. It's also helpful to have a drawing utensil or two on hand just in case, and Ali believes the more color, the better!

Living Room Sessions will be pay-what-you-can between $5-20 to sign up. Proceeds will go to Small Mall staff and the artists to help them through this crisis.

More on Ali:

Ali Karsh is a designer and artist living in Pittsburgh. The art she makes is playful, friendly, and sometimes aggressively colorful. She uses drawing as a tool for thinking, observing, and experimenting with color and shape. She plays with clay to explore her obsession with the way objects and forms make people feel. She makes art that makes her smile and hopes it can do the same for others.
