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!

Small Mall and PGH Photo Fair are joining forces to

photographers in the region.

Next up is Zeal Eva!

The event is free and guests must sign up in order to

receive the Zoom link. The talk begins at 8pm EST.

Small Mall x PGH Photo Fair Tiny Talks are made possible by the William T. Hillman Foundation.

More on Zeal Eva:

"Throughout my life I've struggled with showing emotions, with being vulnerable and open about my journey. It wasn't until I fully started to devote myself to art that I found my voice. Through my visual mediums of photography, painting and illustration I want people to feel when they see and interact with my work, I want there to be a sense of joy and discovery, one of celebration and a new kindness to themselves and also to others."
