The CherryLand Art Gallery & René Capone present…
“Stillness Before Dawn“
A group show of artists who's work and lives embody the spirit of perseverance as they push through life’s challenges in order to continue the creative processes.
Artists sacrifice huge parts of their lives to fully embrace their craft. Here I would like to acknowledges the struggles that each artists has endure. From disabilities or confronting social injustice, all these artists have persevered. As the curator I see the title of the show as a concept ... a concept representing the personal and often quiet victory's that we experience alone.
Artist in the show: Salena Alessandra Valentini, John Waiblinger, René Capone, Eddie Louis Delvaux
Salena Alessandra Valentini creates worlds on canvas that honor the power of what it means to be a women. it’s impossible to deny gender discrimination is still a huge hurdle for women to encounter. In response, Valentini paints strong feminine archetypes who are fully in control of their lives; both within and outside of the canvas. Empowering women is at the center of her artistic journey. The painting titled “The 20’s Blues" embodies both strength and vulnerability.
Many artist live with disability. They will have to fight to be seen and heard. Such is the case with artist Eddie Louis Delvaux. He is a young man with Lupus. Confined to his wheel chair, he manages to still move forward to making beautifully romantic images about the possibilities of falling in love despite having a disability. Eddie’s painting titled “If I Fall” is the perfect example of positive thoughts being brought into reality through the act making art.

The Cherryland Art Gallery was started by Artist René Capone, a renowned figure painter & arts promotor who fell in love with a town called Hayward. By way of Google he discovered this location is actually in a place called Cherryland. Despite most his my friends thinking that I had taken up naming fictional places to live, we then decided to became The Cherryland Art Gallery.
