Like any other birth of a project, the Epretext Design Gallery has opened its way to the world at the intersection of passions and work, Art and Architecture where two people met. We are glad to be able to exhibit, present and sell Romanian design objects that extend on a wide range: from jewelry, to ceramic objects, furniture or textile works created by Romanian designers. The focus of the gallery are the commissioned works, we work with Romanian artists to create unique objects and we focus on people and their daily behavior and the way we can improve their lives.
The gallery exhibits for the first time a large number of Romanian and International young designers under a common concept. In the vision of the gallery, we are expanding our gallery in the interior design area, following its transition from art to architecture.
Founded for people and their homes, the Epretext Gallery includes a series of Romanian design exhibitions, an impressive number of designers and household items. We let our dream be carried away by Romanian designers and we aim to bring them as close as possible to people’s homes.
The Epretext Gallery is founded by the emerging architect Marius Adela Maria and the gallery owner Andrei Jecza.
We are glad to be able to offer our experience in the field of curating homes, houses that live surrounded by Romanian art and design.
Depending on the size of the project, our services include assistance in choosing the right place for your objects as well as assistance in interior design projects.
Choosing The Right Space & Interior Design Advising
Playing with beauty, we are always glad to meet the customers and their houses and working with people and houses, we had the chance to advise a large number of art collectors in choosing works or objects suitable for their home.
Part and complementary to the gallery is ArtEditions – The Source Workshop, it is the first publishing house in Romania, bringing remarkable contemporary art at an affordable price.
Each work is carefully manufactured by the artists in close collaboration with our team of master printmakers from Cluj-Napoca and Timișoara – Cristian Opris, Lacy Matyas, Grigore Liteanu. Using traditional printmaking techniques such as mezzotint, aquatint, drypoint, pochoir, woodcut, linocut, stone lithography and screen printing, each work is a unique piece of art, signed and numbered by the artist’s hand and will include an original certificate of authenticity.
Although printmaking involves reproducing an image, a print is more than just a copy of an original. Fine art prints are something else entirely, resulting from a close collaboration between the artist and the print studio. Master printmakers — the people who work with the artist to produce an edition — are highly skilled technicians, and are often artists in their own rights. Prints are not made in large production runs and as a result they are true works of art, as important to the artist as drawings or other works on paper.
