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: Noah Buchanan, Erin Anderson, Janet A. Cook, Max Ginsburg, Travis Little, Daniel Maidman, Christopher Pugliese and Patricia Watwood. Dacia’s success is a result of a fresh and unconventional approach 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 January 2019, Yan participated in jurying the group show “The Illusion and Reality” for Ning Gallery. Yan is very proud of the 14 artists who are selected from over 160 submissions.

The National Association of Women Artists (NAWA), the oldest women’s fine art organization in the country, is a vibrant community of professional women artists that strives to support its members and women artists at large through exhibitions, programs and education.
Ruonan Yan is honored to be selected in The Other Art Fair this year from Nov 8th - 11th. Presented by Saatchi Art, The Other Art Fair showcases talented independent artists, each hand picked among 800 submissions by a committee of art world experts.
The Other Art Fair is the leading artist fair to discover and buy art direct from the very best emerging artistic talent. Founded in London, UK in 2011, the fairs are now strongly established in the US, UK, and Australia, with annual and biannual editions across the globe in London, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, Sydney, and Melbourne.
Little But Fierce is a group exhibition thoroughly investigates ferocity and the myriad ways it can be demonstrated in art. Some artists tackle difficult subjects head on, including environmental issues, gender expression, and the body, while others display their ferocity with more formal choices: high key colors, aggressive impasto, and a diverse range of artistic styles. Little But Fierce challenges viewers’ expectation that small art has a small impact, and each small work shines as a gem in this treasure of a show.
Ruonan Yan is very excited to announce her first solo show in New York.

The greatest humor is never straightforward, but straightforward can be funny.
Yan’s huge woodcut prints convey a very subtle unseriousness. The one, and sole object is presented on paper in a deadpan way. Artist chooses, and focuses on odd subjects like peeled orange or cashew, and magnifies the unimportance of these objects.
The theme of food is a common first impression people have from Yan’s work. However, what’s more accurate is, Ruonan is expressing the ridiculousness that comes from ordinariness, or even rationality.
In this Chinese New York, two of Ruonan Yan's ink drawings are exhibited in the Cross-Cultural Dialogue-China and America Young Artists Exhibition
“Happy Chinese New Year: Fantastic Art China” is organized by Ministry of Culture of the People’s Republic of China and undertaken by China Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) , the most prestigious and renowned art academy in China, with US-China Cultural Institute. This is a grand international public art project that employs contemporary arts as its major medium to promote Chinese traditional culture. Joined by the preeminent artists and art institutes from both inside and outside of China. The exhibited works are selected carefully out of a great deal of entries.
On the Tribeca Ball 2016, an annual fund raising party of New York Academy of Art, also one of the biggest even in New York City, Ruonan Yan's works were impressed by many guests. Her work "Broccoli " and "West Wind Rustle 西风响 " are featured on the next day Vogue article.
It's such a honor to be featured in one of the most important press in the world. Among over 100 artists on the show, three of them left deep impression to the writer Mark Guiducci. The next day of the article publishing, Broccoli was purchased by a private collector right away.
