Celerbate 100 years of screen painting.
An art form found only in Baltimore and born wholly in Highlandtown, screen painting is 100-years-old this year! A premiere at The Patterson exactly 25 years ago, The Screen Painters tracks the birth of painting window screens and how it became an artform. Homeowners commissioned their screen doors and windows to be painted so that they could see out but passersby couldn’t see in. Painted screen scholar Elaine Eff joins in a post- film discussion with cinematographer ichard Chilsom, along with screen painters Dee Herget, Tom Lipka, and others. Little Castles, the short doc on Balti- more’s Formstone tradition, opens. Supported by The PNC Foundation.
