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!

More on Centa:

In her lens-based practice, Centa Schumacher uses abstraction and luminance to explore ideas of consciousness and the indefinite. Uninterested in what the camera can do as a factual recording device, Schumacher works with a lens assembled from vintage camera elements, creating a unique tool that distorts light and perspective. The resulting images become a portal between natural phenomena and the unseen world.

Schumacher has shown her work in experimental environments including Aggregate Space in Oakland, CA and Root Division in San Francisco, CA, and has been an artist in residence at the Vermont Studio Center (Johnson, VT), Kala Art Institute (Berkeley, CA), and the Art Ark Gallery (San Jose, CA). Her work has been published in the literary magazines Witchcraft and Art Kit. She received her MFA from San Francisco State University and is currently based out of Pittsburgh, PA, where she is the director of Phosphor Project Space, an exhibition space focused on emerging artists.
