Designer John Murphy will participate in show


John Murphy of Tracker Home Decor in Edgartown will participate in the 2012 Southport, Conn., Congregational Church’s 18th Annual Design Showcase.

The three-day event, November 2 to 4, features vignettes of Interior Design by 12 designers, according to a press release. This year’s show is a tribute to the design icon Albert Hadley who started the event in 1994.

The theme is “Design on a Shoestring” which was inspired by an editorial, “Summer on a Shoestring – Before and After,” that Mr. Hadley wrote for Vogue in 1959. Ticket are $20 and proceeds benefit the community and missions supported by the church. More information at or on Facebook.
