CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, April 21 -April 27, 2000 - 69 Panache opens in Rehob00 with higa quality crafts By Trish Vernon According to Webster's Colle- giate Dictionary, the word panache can be defines as "dash or flamboyance in style or ac- tion." Panache is also the name of a new shop featuring fine contem- porary crafts for the home located in Rehoboth Mews at 129 Re- hoboth Avenue. Owned by recent Cape Region transplants Ed and Deborah Rose, and her sister, Sandra Robbins, an artist who has lived here for eight years, Panache is definitely more than a cut above your typical home decor emporium. As Ed explains it, they moved to Rehoboth Beach from southern California in 1998, he "pre-retir- ing" from the medical sales busi- ness and Deborah moving her practice as a psychologist to Lewes. They, along with Rob- bins, have made a practice over the past 25 years of visiting art fairs and began collecting fine pieces during their travels. Through theirtravels they were inspired to "create an art show at the beach without worrying about the weather," Ed said. "Our other goal was to pursue specific artists who are very highly regarded in their various fields, purchase their work and offer them in the Re- hoboth market." With his business, acumen and his wife and sister-in-law's artistic ;dsh Vmon photo= Ed Rose, co-proprietor of Panache, a new purveyor of fine contemporary crafts for the home, stands with some of the pieces offered in the Rehoboth Mews emporium, which opens this week. background, the idea for Panache was born. "We are striving to be- come a part of the community - a very active part," which Ed be- lieves to be an important ingredi- ent to the future success of Panache." "We continue learning about the arts and we hope to ex- tend what we learn to the commu- nity. I believe Panache is different enough that people here will find it to be a great experience." When the threesome leased the store, they lightened up the previ- ously black walls and decided to use the upstairs as half of the gallery. "We need space to show off these works properly," Ed noted, pointing toward a display of re- markable metal works by Tom Markusen, whose art can be found in the book "White House Collec- tion of American Crafts," a vol- ume of which is displayed along with his works. Each piece at Panache, acquired from 75 artists from California to Florida and Canada, deserves its own pedestal, whether it be the in- Interesting and colorful wall hangings and collages grace the walls at Panache. While many of their offerings are mod. ern in theme, many would fit in with any decor. tricate handcarved wood boxes by Muse Studio or the almost inde- scribable molten blown glass bowls from the Taylor Backes Studio. "I watched them create this par- ticular bowl," Ed said proudly, ex- plaining the intricate process used to arrive at this finished master- piece that isn't for the faint of strength to handle or the faint of heart to purchase. Smaller, less formidable objects also grace the shelving at Panache, however, such as the whimsical metal bubble blowers, measuring utensils, glass ring weights, letter openers and even dart sets. "We want everything to be fun and different and we hope not to duplicate any artists already ex- hibiting in the area," Ed assured, noting he believes that the more arts and crafts the Cape Region offers the more it will become a destination location for those seeking fine offerings.
