Ryan Howard and fiancee Krystle Campbell toured the Bridgette Mayer Gallery (709 Walnut) Thursday night during a preview party for its newly expanded gallery space and its Karmic Abstraction exhibition which opens to the public Tuesday.

The rehabbing Phillies slugger walked with crutches as he and Campbell toured the gallery along with Mayer and boyfriend Dennis Alter, former Advanta CEO, and looked at paintings from a dozen abstract artists including Charles Burwell, Ryan McGinness and Odili Donald Odita — whose painting Electric City, was one of those sold Thursday evening.

Atlanta-based artist Radcliffe Bailey along with actress wife Victoria Rowell, of "Young and the Restless" were in town for the opening parties this weekend.

Bradley Cooper went for vegetable samosas from Delectables/Bhagga's Kitchen at the Chestnut Hill Farmers Market the toher day. Cooper is said to have a beautiful blonde friend staying at the Chestnut Hill Hotel. The Germantown Academy graduate and "Hangover" star has toured the farmer's market twice and gone largely unrecognized, or at least undisturbed. Cooper, a former Daily News intern, is back in the area shooting "The Silver Linings Playbook."

Musician and "Law & Order: SVU" actor Ice-T and his buxom blonde bride Coco hosted the Epic Saturdays party at The Pool After Dark Nightclub at Harrah's Resort in Atlantic City.
