Just in time for Valentine’s Day, The Vaudeville Showroom Floor is pleased to announce the debut of the absolutely breathtaking Piedras Jewelry Collection.
Designed and handcrafted in the heart of San Miguel de Allende by Gemologist William Harris, this collection of fine stone jewelry represents a body of work that has become quite well known and sought after throughout The U.S. and Mexico over the past several decades.
We invite you to come experience Piedras Jewelry while on display at Vaudeville. Pieces from this collection are sure to sweep that special someone off their feet and will guarantee the answer you desire when you ask “Will You Be My Valentine?”

About The Artist
The Gallery at Vaudeville is excited and honored to celebrate the work of Reginald Rowe (1920-2007), one of San Antonio’s leading artists for more than four decades. Born in Brooklyn, Rowe was an artist with a remarkable drive to create. His early work was informed and developed by his experience of living in such diverse places as the Hudson Valley, Cuba, and Mexico. Throughout his career Rowe was a prolific painter who created a body of work that described a creative journey of depth and continuity. In 1964 he moved to San Antonio and taught at the McNay Art Institute for over 20 years. Best known for his shaped abstract paintings, Rowe was honored by the McNay Art Museum with a one-man retrospective in 1996.
This exhibition includes two distinctly separate and important periods of Rowe’s career: early and rare works from the 1960s reflecting Rowe’s strong interest in abstract expressionism, as well as various paintings of mixed media from the 1980s. These later works reveal a mature synthesis of Rowe’s continuous study of color, texture and form. Many of these paintings hold a strong presence as objects and maintain a sculptural quality through his technique of mixing sands, gels, and metallic paints.
During his life Rowe exhibited in over seventy individual and select group shows in Texas as well as New York and Mexico and his paintings are in numerous private and public collections across the state. He received awards from the San Miguel Annual and he was the recipient of a Stieren Grant at the San Antonio Art Institute.
When asked what he would like to be remembered for during his one-man retrospective in 1996 Reggie replied, “I’d like to be remembered for this. Be grateful for the good things that happen, “to endure” as William Faulkner said”. We at Vaudeville are truly grateful for the wonderful opportunity to exhibit one of the most distinctive painters of Texas, and to share his work so that it may endure and live forth.
