We can complain about huge corporations running mom-and-pop shops out of business and trampling the rights of individuals, and we can download the Boycott Trump app to stop lining the pockets of an alleged child rapist who generalized an entire group of people as rapists, but we can engage in solutions like building communities and supporting our local economies. The Sacramento Visual Arts Collaborative is setting that kind of example with its Big Show of Small Treasures 2016, a coming together of 11 Sac art venues showing unintimidating-sized artwork (12 inches by 12 inches max), just in time for holiday gift-giving. So, buying from Artistic Edge Gallery instead of Macy’s, for instance, doesn’t just support a small business and an artist who live in our community and will spend their dollars here, but it’s like giving a gift to the artist as well. Big Show of Small Treasures is on December 10-11, and venues include Arthouse, Artistic Edge Gallery, Brickhouse Art Gallery, DaDas Art Gallery Boutique, ITSA Studio, Little Relics, MicroARTCollection, Patris Studio Gallery, Red Dot Gallery, Sparrow Gallery, and Tim Collom Gallery.
