Dacia’s Artist Residency provides an academic program to inspire, refine and redefine the creative direction of artists in a painting intensive two-week program. The application is open to visual artists worldwide, including all mediums and styles of artwork. We are accepting artists that want to dedicate their time to painting, learning the ins and outs of the New York art world and exploring all the wonderful opportunities that the city has to offer artists. Art classes will alternate between figurative painting and drawing, the business of art, guest speakers and lecturers. We will explore the contemporary art galleries of Chelsea and the Lower East Side and visit the great museums of New York. Additionally, an exhibition and opening reception will be held for the participating resident artists at Dacia Gallery.

Dacia Gallery is a contemporary art gallery presenting museum quality solo and group exhibitions of established and emerging artists in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Since 2010, Dacia has gained extensive attention amongst collectors and art connoisseurs by mounting increasingly ambitious representational, landscape and abstract exhibitions, which have included notable artists: Janet A. Cook, Stephen Early, Max Ginsburg, Kristy Gordon, Maria Kreyn, Travis Little, Daniel Maidman, Christopher Pugliese, Nelson Shanks and Patricia Watwood. Dacia’s success is a result of a fresh and unconventional apparoach as to what a gallery should encompass, and by partnering with artists to build a strong community of like-minded individuals willing to support and promote each other’s achievements. 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.
