For 50 years, the owners and staffers of Plaza Artist Materials & Picture Framing have encouraged the artists of their community. They visit local fairs and set up booths for kids to color and craft, and they workshops, demos, and classes for artists of every age. As their name implies, they also outfit art makers of all skill levels with top-of-the-line materials, such as Gamblin oil paints, Prismacolor pens and markers, and custom frames perfect for saving a favorite art pieces or memorializing a sibling's failure to color within the lines.
Since 1919, the knowledgeable staff at Wilson Lighting and Interiors have illuminated thousands of lamps, fixtures, and lighting accessories for customers. Set a shabby-chic parlor aglow with a distressed lamp base ($53), perhaps topping it with a classic hand-stitched Canterbury lampshade ($74). Nightlights ($11.50) comfort nocturnal pets and boogeymen banished to dark closets. Beacons for all purposes await dusky corners in the comprehensive bulb department, including three-way bulbs ($3.60) and full-spectrum bulbs ($17) that form a perfect spotlight for the prima-donna hand of the after-dinner puppet show.

A former cheerleader for the Canadian Football League’s Baltimore Stallions, Samantha Satchell has racked up plenty of experience in both the dance and fitness worlds. The trained dancer has choreographed half-time shows for the Baltimore Blast, a Major Indoor Soccer League team, and the Baltimore Skipjacks, a minor professional ice-hockey team, as well as taught various fitness classes, such as pilates.
In fact, according to the Baltimore Sun, it was during her time teaching dance fitness at local health clubs that Samantha decided she wanted to start her own class, one that “would give her more freedom to mix things up, incorporate new moves, and have more fun.” She now helms the Maverick Dance Party class, a 60-minute class that, much like a musical about Muscle Beach, combines a healthy mix of fitness and dance.
Samantha puts her choreography skills to work once again as she creates original moves that she teaches in a party-like environment. With its low lights and pulsating beat, the dance party resembles a Saturday night out with the girls, rather than a boring fitness class, and participants both torch calories and tap into their individual sexiness while performing moves from styles such as hip-hop, Latin dance, and swing.
Since 1959, The Chessler Company has precisely centered photos, artwork, and diplomas in beautiful, custom frames and mattes. Owing to its craftsmanship, the company now receives demand in the wholesale and commercial markets, including federal and state agencies, art galleries, and top-secret supervillain coalitions, but it still maintains a strong retail business for individual projects. The company's large stock of frames and mats also suits challenging framing projects, such as mirrors, heirlooms, and memorabilia. In addition to the framing services, Chessler's professional installers help patrons achieve gallery-quality displays by hanging large or tricky pieces in the home.
