Tiny Splendor is the anti-snob resource for artists. The local print collective believes art should be accessible to all, so it offers free artwork and zine printing. The not-for-profit is organized by local artist Sanaa Khan. “One major idea behind Tiny Splendor is to create a means for producing our own work and others',” Khan explains. “The heart of Tiny Splendor is accessibility — meaning making quality artworks accessible to everyday people through the medium of print.” Khan has teamed up with Oakland-based Lotte Arts, a group equally dedicated to supporting and promoting affordable art (“This is art even artists can afford!” boasts its website), to create Paper & Pressure, a temporary print pop-up show. The five-day show features artwork by over 50 contemporary artists from all across California. Stop by to hang out and browse through the beautiful pieces, or swing by at night on June 23 – 26 for political printmaking and hand-lettering workshops.
