Theater Thursdays: The Screen Painters w/ Little Castles
June 13th, 2013 by Chris Furino
Creative Alliance at the Patterson
An artform born and raised here in good ol’ Bawlmore, Screen Painting is celebrating its 100th birthday (hey, that’s 10 times more than us!). To celebrate this unique and beautiful art form, the film The Screen Painters will be shown at the Creative Alliance at the Patterson. In short, homeowners would commission screen painters to create intricate designs on the doors of local homes so that passersby could not see in. Following the film will be a discussion with cinematographer Richard Chilsom and other scholars. The film is $12 dollars and will also feature the premiere of the film Little Castles – a film on Baltimore’s Formstone. Be sure to join the Creative Alliance again on Saturday, June 22nd for a tour of the Painted Screens of East Baltimore, costings $35. This event, unique to Baltimore, is one you certainly do not want to miss.
