Friends, family, loved ones, students, and fellow teachers crowded into Our Lady of Victory Church, 4414 Wilkens Ave, Catonsville, on Saturday to pay their last respects to Patricia Anne “Patti” Battaglia, 56, of Catonsville, a nationally known artist and teacher who died March 13 at home after an extended illness. Battaglia was born October 17, 1953.

After the service, she was buried at Dulaney Valley Memorial Gardens, 200 East Padonia Rd, in Timonium.

She was well known in the Maryland – and Carroll County art community for her unique jewelry, collages, drawing, mixed media, and printmaking.

She participated in McDaniel College’s annual Common Ground on the Hill as an instructor since 1998.

One of her original collagraph prints is included in the Maryland Printmakers book housed in the Baltimore Museum of Art.

Battaglia attended the Community College of Baltimore County in Catonsville, before earning a Masters degree in Art Education from Towson University.

She was awarded Teacher of the Year, by the Maryland Art Education Association in 1994. She retired from teaching art in Howard County public schools 30 years, in October 2008. She taught elementary art for 16 of those years and middle school art for 14 years.

“Patti was one of a kind...we will all miss her so,” lamented Dr. Pam Zappardino of McDaniel College and Common Ground.

Susan Williamson of the Carroll Arts Council commented, “She was one of the most beautiful women I have ever met and her soul shone through those gorgeous eyes.”

In addition to her handcrafted jewelry and clothing, Battaglia was known affectionately as the “accessory queen.”

In an extensive interview with Stephanie Shapiro for the Baltimore Sun “This teacher of art is a work of art,” on October 3, 1996, Battaglia, whom Shapiro referred to as “A multimedia artist and confessed ‘clothesaholic,” said, “They don't call me the accessory queen for nothing. I collect everything from antique clothes and coats…”

Walt Michael, executive director and Founder of Common Ground, said “Patti was a stellar member of the art faculty at Common Ground on the Hill from 1998 until just last year.

“Patti's innate talents and artistic flare will be sorely missed by the hundreds of students of all races and ages who spent their summers with her. We will all miss Patti's warm countenance and unforgettable smile, which nurtured everyone she encountered.”

Sara Murphy, friend, and co-owner of “Patrinkets Jewelry” with Battaglia said, “Our beautiful, incredible, passionate, artist and friend has lost her fight with cancer… She will be missed by many friends, family, students, artists, teachers, and countless others whom she loved during her life.

Linda Van Hart, a retired Carroll County public schools art teacher, art professor at McDaniel College, fellow participant in instructor at Common Ground and lifelong friend of Battaglia’s, said “she was beautiful and kind…”

In between teaching in Howard County public schools, Common Ground and the Maryland Institute College of Art; Van Hart says, “We sandwiched art "happenings" at Howard County Arts Center and installation's for Maryland Art Places' Hair Ball sponsored by John Waters with the United Art Workers

“Many of the best art teachers in Maryland polished their passion for teaching art in her classroom (as student teachers.)

“She has been my best friend for over half my life. Patti is an awesome artist and an unforgettable woman,” said Van Hart.

Battaglia was also especially fond of her two dogs, which she referred to as her “boyz,” Aussie Sidney, an 11-year-old super sized Australian Shepherd and Berner Frankie, a 7-year-old Bernese mountain dog.

Battaglia was the beloved daughter of Lucy Battaglia-Witherspoon (nee Levasseur) and the late Salvatore Battaglia, loving companion and soul mate of Bill Murphy, and dear sister of Timothy, his wife Maureen, and their daughter Jessica; Michael and his wife Allison; and Gregory and his wife, Tracy and their sons Michael and Alex.

Tonight, when the Fells Point Creative Alliance's second annual group show opens, the path from venue to venue will be charted with brilliant windsocks created by art teacher Patti Anne Battaglia and her Elkridge Landing Middle School students.

But don't just follow the neon windsocks to "The Big Show." Follow Battaglia, who undoubtedly will be lighting the way in something ingeniously outrageous. A multimedia artist and confessed "clothesaholic," Battaglia, 42, once made all of her clothes, but now will dabble with a cuff, meddle with a collar to make her wardrobe hers and hers alone.

Patti Anne Battaglia, nationally known artist, teacher, 56


Patti Anne Battaglia, nationally known artist, teacher, 56

By Kevin Dayhoff March 14, 2010 http://kevindayhoff.blogspot.com/2010/03/patti-anne-battaglia-nationally-known.html http://tinyurl.com/y9pdsla http://twitpic.com/19hn4a Labels: Art Artists, Art Artists Battaglia Patti Anne, Art Artists Van Hart Linda, People Tributes http://kbetrue.livejournal.com/310613.html

Patricia Anne “Patti” Battaglia, 56, of Catonsville, a nationally known artist and teacher, died March 13 at home after an extended illness. Battaglia was born October 17, 1953.

She was well known in the Maryland – and Carroll County art community for her unique jewelry, collages, drawing, mixed media, and printmaking.

She participated in McDaniel College’s annual Common Ground on the Hill as an instructor since 1998.

According to the 2009 program for Common Ground, a traditional music and arts festival held at McDaniel College since 1994, in Westminster, Battaglia “recently retired from teaching art in public schools for 30 years in Howard County, Patti has had plenty of opportunity to learn and teach various forms of printmaking…

“She is honored to have one of her original collagraph prints included in the Maryland Printmakers book housed in the Baltimore Museum of Art.”

Walt Michael, executive director and Founder of Common Ground, said “Patti was a stellar member of the art faculty at Common Ground on the Hill from 1998 until just last year.

“Patti's innate talents and artistic flare will be sorely missed by the hundreds of students of all races and ages who spent their summers with her. We will all miss Patti's warm countenance and unforgettable smile, which nurtured everyone she encountered.”

Sara Murphy, friend, and co-owner of “Patrinkets Jewelry,” with Battaglia said, “Our beautiful, incredible, passionate, artist and friend has lost her fight with cancer… She will be missed by many friends, family, students, artists, teachers, and countless others whom she loved during her life.

“Her impact in this world is immeasurable; the ripples in a pond effect. Her teachings and love reach beyond her through those she inspired.

“Patti began making Patrinkets Jewelry out of her desire to adorn herself with original, creative, fun, colorful, magical artistic expressions.

“As an artist, she pushed the limits, continued to explore new possibilities. People were captivated by her presence…”

Murphy and Battaglia began their “collaboration with strengths-in July 2004 (after) we shared a table at Common Ground Music and Arts Festival…

“We were sisters in spirit,” said Murphy, “following instincts from a greater source that told us we were doing the right thing. We never made two pieces exactly the same. We did custom work to suit the individual’s needs; often designing pieces to go with a special outfit or occasion.”

Battaglia attended the Community College of Baltimore County in Catonsville, before earning a Masters degree in Art Education from Towson University.

She was awarded Teacher of the Year, by the Maryland Art Education Association in 1994. She retired from teaching art in Howard County public schools 30 years, in October 2008. She taught elementary art for 16 of those years and middle school art for 14 years.

In addition to Murphy, Battaglia was ‘family’ to so many people, especially her close friends, including Linda Van Hart and Mary Opasik.

Battaglia was also especially fond of her two dogs, which she referred to as her “boyz,” Aussie Sidney, an 11-year-old super sized Australian Shepherd and Berner Frankie, a 7-year-old Bernese mountain dog.

In addition to her handcrafted jewelry and clothing, Battaglia was known affectionately as the “accessory queen.”

In an extensive interview with Stephanie Shapiro for the Baltimore Sun “This teacher of art is a work of art,” on October 3, 1996, Battaglia, whom Shapiro referred to as “A multimedia artist and confessed ‘clothesaholic,” said, “They don't call me the accessory queen for nothing. I collect everything from antique clothes and coats…”

“I designed and made my own clothes in high school. I had a great big carpetbag. My mother never let me wear wild clothes for school. I had one look I went out the door with and another look [in the carpetbag] that showed up at school.”

“Do you remember in particular any outfit that you made?” asked Shapiro.

“I made a really wonderful, sort of salmon-colored satin mini-dress that doubled as a tunic,” responded Battaglia.

“It had bands of piping around the neckline. I wore it to see Jimi Hendrix in concert. I [also] wore that in school with purple elephant leg denim pants. My grandmother showed me how to do rag curls, so my hair bounced up and down while I walked through school. Platform shoes topped off the outfit.”

Van Hart, an art professor at McDaniel College, fellow participant in instructor at Common Ground and lifelong friend of Battaglia’s, said “she was beautiful and kind… I had not planned to spend the rest of my life without my best friend.”

Van Hart and Battaglia met at “a rather dull art education class room at Towson University in the late 1970s.” Battaglia entered the room like “a glowing vision of exotic cinnabar and silk…”

For the next four decades they worked together in the Maryland Art Education Association, Youth Art Month and Program Committee, and National Art Education Association.

In the pursuit of their common-interests in art and art education they traveled all over the United States and the world. They visited places such as Egypt, along with fellow McDaniel art professor Wasyl Palijczuk, Portugal, Jamaica, and “with Spanish oriented trips to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico City, San Miguel de 'Allende and Taxco on the Frida (Kahlo) trail.”

In between teaching in Howard County public schools, Common Ground and the Maryland Institute College of Art; Van Hart says, “We sandwiched art "happenings" at Howard County Arts Center and installation's for Maryland Art Places' Hair Ball sponsored by John Waters with the United Art Workers: John Sosnowsky, Kevin Dayhoff, Cathy Leaycraft, Dan Shapiro and Bobby Waddell…”

According to Van Hart, Battaglia’s “favorite subjects to teach were Japanese fish printing, collagraph printmaking, collage, assemblage, and funky junque jewelry.

“Many of the best art teachers in Maryland polished their passion for teaching art in her classroom (as student teachers.)

“She has been my best friend for over half my life. Patti is an awesome artist and an unforgettable woman.”

Battaglia was the beloved daughter of Lucy Battaglia-Witherspoon (nee Levasseur) and the late Salvatore Battaglia, loving companion and soul mate of Bill Murphy, and dear sister of Timothy, his wife Maureen, and their daughter Jessica; Michael and his wife Allison; and Gregory and his wife, Tracy and their sons Michael and Alex.

Viewing will be held at Weber's Funeral Home, 5311 Edmondson Ave, Baltimore, on Thursday and Friday March 18 & 19 from 2-5pm and 7-9pm.

A funeral service will be Saturday March 20 at 10am at Our Lady of Victory Church, 4414 Wilkens Ave, Catonsville, followed by burial at Dulaney Valley Memorial Gardens, 200 East Padonia Rd, Timonium 21093.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Defenders of Animal Rights, 14412 Old York Rd, Phoenix, MD 21131

Note, the writer was one of Battaglia’s art partners in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

LONDON.- Christie’s announced that they will offer an exceptionally important and highly celebrated masterpiece by Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) in the evening auction of Impressionist and Modern Art in London on 23 June 2010.

The 3rd Annual Corbit’s Charge Civil War Ball will take place this year on March 27, in the gymnasium of the old Longwell Armory (known today as the Westminster Family Center), 11 Longwell Avenue, in Downtown Westminster, Maryland, from 8:00 pm. until 11:00 p.m.

The annual event is hosted by the Corbit’s Charge Commemoration Committee and the City of Westminster’s Department of Recreation and Parks.

Proceeds will benefit the Corbit’s Charge Commemoration Committee, which is a not-for-profit organization affiliated with the Community Foundation of Carroll County.

The commemoration committee is dedicated to educating the public on Corbit’s Charge, which is also known by some historians as “The Battle of Westminster,” and other Civil War events that occurred in Westminster.

The annual ball particularly helps fund the commemoration committee’s sponsorship of Corbit’s Charge Commemorative Weekend held annually the last weekend of June.

According to a release by the city and the commemoration committee, attending the ball allows a person to “Experience a sense of what life was like more than 145 years ago … for an evening of 1860s period dancing, dance instruction, light refreshments, door prizes, and fun in Historic Downtown Westminster.

“Noted dance instructors and callers Briant and Karin Bohleke of the Gettysburg area will serve as the dance master and mistress. Live period dance music will be performed by Peg Shutes and Bruce Young of Smash the Windows from State College, Pennsylvania.”

“The ball is for the experienced and beginner alike and a partner is not required. Well-behaved children may attend; however, they need to be able to follow the calls to participate in the group formation dances.

“Your best 19th Century period attire is requested but not required; appropriate modern semi-formal attire is acceptable. Shoes with flexible leather soles are recommended for all dancing. Sandals, slides and rubber-soled athletic shoes are not desirable footwear for dancing. Please remember that spurs, swords, heel plates, and firearms are prohibited in the gym and on the building grounds.”

For those who did not attend the original conflict that inspired events such as the ball or the annual weekend in June, Corbit’s Charge took place on June 29, 1863 in Westminster.

At that time, according to the release, “90 men of Companies C & D of the Union First Delaware Cavalry engaged the vanguard of Major General J.E.B. Stuart’s 5,000-man cavalry division of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia.”

“The brisk cavalry fight at the corner of Main Street and Washington Road became known as Corbit’s Charge, named after the commander, Capt. Charles Corbit, of the brave union troops. While it was a confederate victory, the battle helped to impede Stuart’s ability to link up with Confederate infantry in Pennsylvania and was a contributing factor in the defeat of Lee at Gettysburg.”

Tickets for the ball are $20 per person. Free parking is available in the Longwell parking deck or on the Longwell surface lot. If you are arriving by horse and buggy, please bring your own hay and horse feed.

The Soligny story so far


The Soligny story so far: go here - -

Anthony Troy Soligny, 33, of New Windsor, Carroll County, Maryland, is accused of attacking his wife with a hammer on March 2, 2010

Maryland State Police say Soligny allegedly assaulted his wife with a steel and rubber hammer, which police said they have taken into evidence.

At about 11:30 p.m. March 2, 2010, State Police at the Westminster Barracks received a 911 call from the victim, who had gone to a neighbor’s home to call police.

Troopers found the victim had sustained what appeared to be severe blunt force trauma injuries to her head. She was transported by ambulance to the Carroll Hospital Center, then later to Shock Trauma Center.

After the alleged assault on March 2, 2010, Soligny fled the state. He was arrested the next day, March 3, 2010, while traveling on I-85 just outside of Lavonia Georgia. He was subsequently locked up in Franklin County Detention Center in Carnesville, Ga., until Maryland State Police returned him to Carroll County.

On Tuesday, March 9, 2010, Maryland State Police spokesman Greg Shipley said Soligny arrived at the Carroll County Detention Center at 5:45 p.m. He was flown back to Maryland by troopers on a State Police plane. “There were no problems reported during transport.”

On March 11, 2010, a judge ordered the defendant held without bail. It was further ordered that Soligny have no contact with the alleged victim, (his wife) or “the minor children,” and that Soligny be given a psychiatric evaluation.

Laura Russell looks positively dashing in her “Cat in the Hat” chapeau at William Winchester Elementary School in Westminster MD on March 1, 2010.

She was among about a dozen local dignitaries, retired teachers and other civic-minded persons put together last Monday, by the Woman's Club of Westminster, for “Read Across America” day, which celebrates Dr. Seuss’s birthday every year by reading to school children and distributing books.

Thomas Sterner is a sculptor and mixed media artist who is an important element in the fabric of art in Carroll County. Over the years his installations, organic sculptures and intricately carved wooden plaques and doors have both challenged and delighted viewers.

His work reminds the viewers of the delicate connection between humankind and nature. The natural wood canvas is delicately carved and enhanced with paint. Whether the work is infused with textual references or not, the work can be interpreted on many levels. Currently he is working on a series of architectural doors such as “A is for Art” which can be seen in the lobby of the Carroll Arts Center.

Thomas, his wife Barbara and children Bella and Taj are frequent visitors and participants in the myriad of art activities that Carroll County has to offer.

Off Track Art is pleased to have Thomas Sterner as our guest artist for March and April.
