Be safe. Stay healthy.



Tuesday, September 20
(4:00 - 5:30 PM)

Join Elaine Eff, the foremost chronicler of painted screens, for a tour of the sidewalks of East Baltimore,
in search of this homegrown folk art known in no other modern American city. 
An artful anomaly, a source of privacy and ventilation, painted screens grew from the handiwork of a single Northeast Baltimore grocer
in the summer of 1913 to hundreds of thousands of colorful landscape scenes 
created by known and unknown hands on their neighborhood’s rowhouse windows and door screens. 
The talk will be followed by a viewing of archival materials related to the history of painted screens
which are part of the Maryland Traditions Archive housed in UMBC’s Special Collections.

This lecture is made possible with financial support 
from a 2023 Maryland Folklife Network Grant from the Maryland State Arts Council.

with instructor Clare Chesnavage

4 sessions:
 M/W, Dec 7, 9 & 14, 16

Screen Painting virtually* with Clare Chesnavage on December 7, 9, 14, 16 from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.  Painted screens are canvases with holes. Imagine a window or door screen with a picture painted on the exterior side only. The paint does not cover or clog the holes. The colorful image stops the gaze of people on the sidewalk from seeing inside the darkened room. The view to the street from the house is unobstructed. The screen still functions perfectly for ventilation and as a barrier to flying insects. These screens originated in Baltimore neighborhoods in 1913.  You will create your own painting on a screen.  Supplies may be picked up at the Lifelong Learning Office.  

Cost is $60 per class for Silver members; Free to Gold members; plus $15 for supplies.  

To register, contact Karen Rice at krice@shepherd.edu or 304-876-5135.
