Historic designation lost for PREIT-owned Robinson building in Market East

A city government panel has ruled against designating the former Robinson department store at 1020 Market Street as a historically significant structure, opening the way for the modernist building’s unique wave-like facade of sweeping purple glass tile to be demolished.

In Philly galleries now: Craft, collage, and an out-of-the-way show worth the trouble

Through Jan. 27 at Fleisher/Ollman Gallery, 1216 Arch St., 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 12 to 5 p.m. Saturdays. Information: 215-545-7562 or www.fleisherollman.com.

    In Philly galleries now: Craft, collage, and an out-of-the-way show worth the trouble
    A two-person show where there's a synchronicity between the artists' efforts is always a thrill, like listening to a perfectly matched duet. In that way, Fleisher/Ollman Gallery's current "Collage as Painting," pairing Kate Abercrombie and Trevor Winkfield, is brilliant. There's an unmistakable sense of like-mindedness in the two artists' intensely solitary preoccupation.

    Cret Exhibition Captures Vibrations Of The City
    Editor's note: Architectural drawing is a dying art. Before the digital revolution gave birth to drafting software, renderings of buildings, bridges, barrel vaults, and bell towers were meticulously illustrated by hand. And although most of the technical work done for architectural and engineering firms in the past left no room for emotion or expression, a human touch, and a physical object, remained.
