A Look Back in Time


A little music, a little art, a little history for your Soul.

  April 28 - May 1  


 "His Master's Voice" was music to Nipper's ears!   

Like painted window screens,
the RCA Nipper statue of a loyal and trusted companion dog
that sat atop the "RCA building" on Russell Street and never left his master's side
was an unforgettable sight to see in mid-century Baltimore.

Nipper greeted motorists as they entered south Baltimore from the BWParkway
and drove past .

Hope you enjoyed the

Baltimore's Best 2016

Anna's "Pride of Baltimore Sailing by Domino" window screen painting was featured in Baltimore Magazine's August 2016  "Best of Baltimore" issue.  

Screen art reminiscent of the old painted window screens. 

Witness the magic of a disappearing painted screen.

Windows to Your Heart Necklaces,

the world's smallest painted screens,

and See-thru screen art

change in the light like old fashioned painted window screens disappear from the inside looking out.

Now you see it, now you don't. 

The painting appears to vanish, but at least it's not shredded to pieces like the $1.4 million Banksy Prank

"You see out; No one see in."

Maryland Traditions: 

Maryland’s state folklife program

Maryland State Government

I am pleased to announce that Master painter Anna Pasqualucci and a very talented Apprentice Lisa Penn have teamed up to pass along the folk art of screen painting. We have been honored to have received a Maryland Traditions Apprenticeship Award for 2017-2018 The purpose of the award is to support up to one year of study in folklife, or living cultural traditions. "During the study period, a master folklife practitioner passes down her or his knowledge to an apprentice in an effort to support the vitality of folklife in Maryland."  

Visit Lisa on Facebook at Jaybird's Feather.

Maryland State Arts Council's 2017-2018 Maryland Traditions apprentice team Anna Pasqualucci and Lisa Penn presented the art of Baltimore screen painting at the National Folk Festival in Salisbury, Sept 8 and 9. 

Lisa Marie Penn unveiled her incredible Bay Bridge screen painting at the National Folk Festival. I'm so glad to have had the opportunity to team up with Lisa for our Maryland Traditions Apprenticeship. 

Thank you MSAC, The Painted Screen Society, and thank you Lisa!

The iconic painted rowhouse screens of Baltimore date back to 1913, when Czech grocer William Oktavec introduced his “red bungalow” scene. Since then, the practice of painting rowhouse screen doors has become a symbol of Baltimore’s rich cultural and historical heritage.
