Voice of an Angel

Vibe Rouvet is the daughter of TWS contributing illustrator Alexandra Rouvet Duvernoy of France.  A stunning resemblance to her mother with talent that runs deep in the family, Ms. Rouvet is an opera student at the Music Conservatory of Pau, France. On the video she sings “Volta la Terrea” from Verdi (extract from the opera: Un ballo in Masquera).  Here singing teacher is Marie Claire Delay. This summer she will be taking a master class in Mozarteum of Salzburg in Austria.

I am honored to announce my participation in the first inaugural photography exhibition at  Stanek Gallery,  located at 242 North 3rd street in Philadelphia.  The group exhibition was curated by the legendary art gallerist and dealer Sande Webster Brantley, who I came to know during the early 1990’s when she had her first gallery on Locust street near Rittenhouse Square. She would later move to fancier digs at 2008 Walnut Street before closing the gallery in 2011 to pursue curating and art consulting.  Sande was one of the first if not the first female art dealer in American history to embrace African American artists works as equal to their white counter parts.  It is with this distinction that makes Sande Webster’s vision of art free of racism, bigotry, or prejudice. In celebration of this exhibition I would like to express my deepest appreciation for being included with these most distinguished artists, some of whom I’ve known since the 1970’s.  Shout outs to: Adger Cowans, Willie Williams, Donald Camp, Arlene Love, Robert Reinhardt, Ada Trillo, Ronald Tarver, Andrea Baldeck, Anthony Barbosa and Stanek Gallery.

K and I met at the Barnes Foundation for this recent collaboration. I couldn’t think of a better location dignified enough to represent his brand. I’ve seen K Vaughn in action over two decades as he solidly built his own brand from stem to stern, one stitch at a time.  This of course is no easy task. However, K Vaughn year after year lives up to the task of showering his customers with the best fabrics he can find between his haunts from Philly to New York.  This season Kevin’s mood reflect’s the weather; April still feeling like fall, thus his current mood.
