We’ve just heard from artist and curator Lee Vasu about his new gallery, Dacia (pronounced like “dotcha”) that is opening up at 53 Stanton Street – tonight. Vasu has teamed up with his long time friend, author Damian Salo, to create Dacia Gallery. He writes that the two “have been best friends since college and have organized numerous art exhibitions and events in both Europe and the United States.” He told me everything came together very quickly once they decided to collaborate on something more permanent here on the Lower East Side.
In an interesting twist, the gallery will also offer painting and drawing classes. Vasu is bringing together a group of national and international artists for the gallery’s first exhibition, TRIUMPH, and hopes everyone can stop by the opening reception tonight from 6 – 10p.
