Dacia Gallery has organized and curated exhibitions of contemporary emerging and established artists since opening in 2010. Since its inception, the gallery has gained extensive attention by mounting increasingly ambitious, museum quality exhibitions. The gallery exhibits a wide array of mediums from drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography and mix media. The monthly exhibitions present an exceptional portfolio of artists to collectors and art enthusiasts. The gallery’s roster of notable artists include Patricia Watwood, Max Ginsburg, Stephen Early, Leah Yerpe, Travis Little, Janet Cook, Daniel Maidman and Barbara Bachner. By taking a fresh and unconventional approach to curating and exhibition design the gallery continues to grow maintaining a commitment of excellence and quality. In addition, exhibiting artists are always present at our opening receptions where we invite them to give an artist talk and to meet and greet the admiring public.
|Lee Vasu is an Artist, Curator and the Founder of Dacia Gallery. Born in Sibiu, Romania in 1979, Vasu spent his adventurous childhood in Transylvania drawing and painting. Inspired by the stunning mosaics, frescos, and the mystical sacred Icons of the Byzantine Churches of his native land, Vasu formed a unique artistic vision of the timelessness and power of art that could enlighten and inspire generations. In 1990, Vasu moved to the United States with his family and continued to study art. He received a BA in History and Art from Kent Sate University and a Masters Degree in Arts Administration and Museum Science from the University of Akron, to further pursue his curatorial passion. Following his studies, Lee represented Romania and the United States at the European House of Arts and held his first solo exhibition at the Academy of Arts and Sciences in Bucharest. Additionally, Vasu participated in group and solo exhibitions in France, Germany, Romania and the United States, his work can be found in numerous public and private collections. His passion for art enabled him to curate exhibitions nationally and internationally, which inspired him to establish Dacia Gallery in New York City.
