Program Description:

Dacia Gallery is proud to announce its annual Artist Residency in Sibiu, Romania for Summer 2018. The residency is located in Transylvania at the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains in the medieval city of Sibiu. The Sibiu Artist Residency provides an academic program to inspire, refine and redefine the creative direction of artists in a figure and landscape painting intensive four-week program. Including two art exhibitions, one in Sibiu, Romania and one at Dacia Gallery in New York City.

Let nature be your muse as you discover light, color and perspective by painting the landscape of mountains, fields and the red-shingled rooftops of medieval towns and villages with glimmering church spires. Experience figure painting in a unique environment as you paint the nude model with expert teacher instruction of anatomy, form, line, color and depth. Develop a realistic looking approach to painting the figure by a true study of nature and the beauty of the human form.

Explore the medieval city of Sibiu, its churches, plazas, restaurants and cafes that line the cobblestone streets and visit the Brukenthal Museum. See the Black Church of Brasov and the star shaped citadel fortress of Alba Iulia and the fairytale Castle of Hunedoara. Journey through the mysterious forests and serpentines that lead to the castle of Vlad the Impaler, otherwise known as Dracula. Join us on an amazing artistic experience in Romania.
