Living and working in Asia since 1984, with a lifelong commitment to working in the arts worldwide, Art Director Suzanne Lecht is recognized as a leading authority on contemporary art in Vietnam. Suzanne has been working with Vietnamese artists since the day she moved from Tokyo to Hanoi in January 1994 and is dedicated to discovering exceptional artists who are singular and passionate in their expression.
The first public Art Vietnam Gallery was established in 2002 at 30 Hang Than in a traditional Vietnamese tube house and has had several locations in the old quarter of Hanoi. In January of 2017, Suzanne decided to close her public gallery and return to her origin, a salon gallery/house that she built in Hanoi with the help of her artist friends in 1994. An intimate, creative reflection of the culture of Vietnam, the salon is open by appointment only and offers private parties, art consultations, poetry readings, music events as well as other cultural activities. VIP collector evenings and educational events are held to disseminate the culture of Vietnam.
Rotating exhibitions are mounted monthly at the salon gallery and Suzanne continues to curate shows in Vietnam and other cities worldwide to expose our artists in the international art world.
