the exhibition in Palazzo Pancrazi in Barga Vecchia will be open daily until July 12th

Mixed Media adds a full range of tools to my pallet, allowing me to explore beyond the boundaries that separate and connect them all.

A "pop up" exhibition of work this week in the Palazzo Pancrazi in Barga Vecchia by Keane

Six oil paintings on vertical metal panels – all reminiscent of the Barga Pop Tarot paintings from 2016 (article here)  with black outlines and limited colouring. The symbolism found on some early tarot cards led many people to believe that tarot cards were in fact the expression of ancient streams of wisdom… the eternal, esoteric […]

Palazzo Pancrazi finally free of scaffolding

Things done well take time and this morning, Barga Vecchia is celebrating the return of the Piazza Salvi and Palazzo Pancrazi

Back in 2012 we published an article stating that  the traditional Tuscan red tile covering the roofs of Barga had been under threat because of a mixture of lack of maintenance, extreme weather conditions and the earth tremours all conspiring with the forces of gravity to bring the tiles to the ground. One of those […]
