The Devoted Classicist Speaks

A Garden Room created by John Tackett Design
during a renovation in University Park, Dallas
It is hoped that all in the Baltimore area can join me on the evening of April 12, 2017, at Evergreen Museum & Library, 6:30 pm.  John J. Tackett will speak on the topic of the legendary firm Parish-Hadley and how it served as a training ground for me and dozens of other interior designers and architects.  I will also discuss current trends in residential architecture and design and take audience questions on the subject -- with cocktails and a light supper -- all in the beautiful Bakst Theatre in historic Evergreen Mansion, 4545 N. Charles Street, Baltimore, Maryland 21210.  The event is part of The House Beautiful Lecture Series of Johns Hopkins University.  Advance registration is required.  For more information and tickets, click here.


  1. It sounds like a dream event--your lecture given in that historic house. I am sorry that I cannot be there, but I envy those who will attend.

  2. Sounds like a wonderful event, made even more special by your presence. Sorry to miss it. Please share photos with us.

  3. Hope some Atlantans will invite you down here for a talk and visit.
