Community Art Center's Designer Show House Features Top Notch Designers

PLUS: The country’s oldest auction house, Freeman’s, comes to Wayne.

Designer Dreams

This month, a select group of the most sought-after interior and landscape designers have been tapped to put their best creative efforts to work at the Community Arts Center’s Designer Show House. See the dramatic transformation of a 19th-century Rose Valley farmhouse May 2-27. Built by Media’s E.K. Crothers for the prominent Beatty family, the home has plenty of Old World charm and architectural details. Local designers involved include Janice L. Clark and Lisa Cope of Simply Divine Interiors in Unionville; Gretchen Mannion of Main Line Design in Wayne; and Swarthmore’s Rose Tree Gardeners and Savery Design.
A gallery space and various rooms in the home will display work by CAC members and exhibiting artists. Tickets are $25. Visit

Old is New on the Main Line

Freeman’s, the country’s oldest auction house, opens a suburban office this month in the Eagle Village Shops in Wayne. The Main Line location offers “walk-in” consignment days, preview events and lectures focusing on jewelry, paintings and the decorative arts.
