Current Gallery Exhibit

Ron DePentu

The Village Theater at Cherry Hill is pleased to exhibit now through January 30, 2018 featuring the work of Ron DePentu. 

Ron DePentu completed his undergraduate work at State University of New York at Buffalo and graduate school at Syracuse University.  Mr. DePentu also served four years with the United States Navy.

Following his studies and dedicated service to the United States of America, Mr. DePentu was an instructor for five years at LeMoyne College in Syracuse New York and a public school teacher for twenty-six years with North Syracuse Schools where he taught art and photography.  Many of Mr. DePentu's students have received local and national scholastic art awards.

Ron DePentu has exhibited widely in the New York State area, won Best in Show awards, Purchase Award at the New York State Fair, and has had works in Syracuse, Niagara Falls, Oswego, Rochester, Jefferson County Community College of New York, as well as in Michigan, Florida, Virginia, Utah, and California.

In the past, Mr. DePentu has considered his work to be quite traditional.  However, presently he finds himself working in a non-traditional manner, utilizing materials he previously never imagined using and finds the work more challenging and satisfying as the completed work is never quite predictable.  This style allows him to utilize basic skills while at the same time being inventive.

This current art exhibit at the Gallery@VT is free and open to the public: Monday – Friday 10 am – 2 pm, one hour prior to and during public performances at the theater, as well as by appointment.  The Gallery@VT is closed on holidays.  The gallery is located at 50400 Cherry Hill Rd., Canton, MI, 48187.  For more information about this latest exhibit, please call 734/394-5300.
