The Huntington Library in San Marino is opening what promises to be a fabulous exhibit on "Arts and Crafts legends" Greene and Greene. "A 'New and Native' Beauty"  opens Saturday, Oct. 18, 2008, and will be on display through Jan. 26, 2009.

Inspired by the centennial of the Gamble House in Pasadena, "New and Native" will tell a chronological story over nearly 90 years, featuring 140 items from the collections of the Huntington, the Gamble House, other institutions and private individuals. The objects include 15 pieces of furniture from the 1909 Robert R. Blacker House.

The exhibit will also feature photos, drawings and descriptions of the Blacker House, the Gamble House and the Robinson, Tichenor and Culbertson homes.

The book accompanying the exhibit, by the way, is priced at $75.
