45th anniversary of the opening of Gabriel Popescu Atelier House

On May 15th 2017, Vulcana Pandele hosted an event dedicated to the 45th anniversary of the opening – as a museum – of Gabriel Popescu Atelier House. The Atelier House and the birthplace of the great engraver Gabriel Popescu were brought to their former glory.

The participants visited a photo exhibition and were initiated in the art of engraving by artist Andrei Scărlătescu.

Alexandru Oprea, Dâmbovița County Council President: “The restoration of Gabriel Popescu Atelier House and the reconstruction of his birth house have brought the museum into a tourist and scientific circuit and should be the impetus for reaching high visibility parameters on the Romanian cultural and scientific market. Those who enter the museum enter another universe where they have the opportunity to develop themselves, learn and study, recreate, develop different activities out of the daily routine. We therefore recommend visiting the museum and discovering the engraving artist at his home.

Celebrating 45 years of existence as a museum, we can only admire the way Gabriel Popescu Atelier House returned to a new life. The tourists who will reach this place will be able to approach this unique universe.”
