Nancy Herman
8" x 6"
oil on canvas board

This painting looks in the window of Pescatore, one of the restaurants opposite the Bala Theatre. Part of the decorations on the theatre are reflected in the window.  "The Bala Theatre, called the Egyptian Theatre when it was built in 1927 is the only surviving "exotic" themed movie palace in the area."
The Lower Merion Conservancy recently put out its 2012 Watch List for our area.  Number one on the list is Bala Avenue which does not have any historic preservation in place.  I am going to visit and paint on all the sites on the list eventually.  I will contribute the proceeds of any painting sales as a result of this project to the Conservancy.
