Designer Genes?



Have you ever been walking down the street and said to yourself, "Man, I wish there was somewhere I could go to hear the piano stylings of a certifiable master, learn about flowers, stained glass, and mid-century interiors, eat like a sultan, pick up some tips on hanging pictures, get my scrapbooking skills up to par, and generally hip myself to the latest and greatest elements of contemporary art and design"? If so, all of that and much more is on tap at the Brooks Museum League's Art and Design Fair, which runs from Friday, March 30th, to Sunday, April 1st, at the Agricenter.

Retro-fans will want to visit on Friday at 2 p.m. when Philadelphia

Inquirer design columnist Karla Albertson delivers a lecture on decorative arts from the 1940s to 1960s. Albertson's more than a design maven. She's a trained archaeologist who can get your space-age bachelor pad (or modern love nest) looking just the way Charles Eames would have wanted it.

An opening-night party on Thursday, March 29th, from 5:30 to 8 p.m., features a silent auction, cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and entertainment by Panamanian pianist Alex Ortega. Tickets for the preview party are $30.

The Brooks Museum League's Art and Design Fair, Friday-Sunday, March 30th-

April 1st, Agricenter International, $10. For additional information, call 861-3637
