Dacia Gallery presents As. You. Are. A provocative exhibition of paintings by four female artists living and working in NYC. The title “As You Are” explores the very idea of how these artists show up in their art practice on any given day, week or hour. With the current rise of the modern feminist movement, this group’s body of work depicts the subtle energetics and mood of each artist as an emotional vessel from their point of view. Whether figurative or abstract, each artist is also conveying an approachable “as you are” sense to the viewer. Their paintings act as mirrors or containers reflecting back to the viewer and making a personal connection. This exhibition is an invitation to see thought provoking and exciting new work, so please come...as you are.


Michele Riche is a contemporary figurative painter. She received her BFA at St. Lawrence University and has continued her education in New York City, taking classes at The School of Visual Arts among other institutions. Michele has exhibited in numerous group exhibitions, as well as The Other Art Fair, sponsored by Saatchi Art.  In addition, she had a solo exhibition at the Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury, CT in 2019. Michele lives in New York City.


Jenny Casey is an abstract painter and graphic designer with a BFA from James Madison University. Her fine art has been exhibited across the country including Walter Wickiser Gallery in Manhattan’s Chelsea Gallery District, the SOFA Art Fair in Chicago and the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Virginia. Jenny currently works and resides in New York City. 


Emily Klima is a New York City–based visual artist. She started her studies in fine art at Boston University as a painting major and completed her studies there with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in graphic design. Her love of that field - most especially typography - led Ms. Klima to have a full design career at several of New York’s top fashion magazines. For the last decade Ms. Klima has focused her attention to her painting and has exhibited as a solo artist and in various group shows across the country and online. Her work has also been showcased on HBOs Orange Is The New Black and Divorce.


Laura Salzberg is an abstract mixed media artist. She earned a BFA from the State University of New York at Purchase. Laura has exhibited her paintings in several group shows in New York and online. Several of her pieces have appeared on album covers for privately published CDs. Laura has been living and working in New York City since 1980.
