our artist in residence project in Tuscany

Luxury boutique hotel Albergo Villa Casanova near Lucca in Tuscany, Italy, is pleased to announce their ongoing collaboration with The hotel owners Marianne and Adel wanted their guests to share their love of original Scottish art while supporting their favourite Scottish artists.

The result is the's artist in residence project together with an exhibition within an area of the hotel now dedicated to gallery space. Artists Alan Watson and Karen Cairns will visit Albergo Villa Casanova this summer to work in the hotel’s bespoke studio space. But the hotel's project is about much more than providing studio and wall space at the hotel as Marianne of Albergo Villa Casanova explained....

"We are delighted to again welcome 2 of our best loved artists back to paint while soaking up the wonderful atmosphere of life at our hotel. The impact the artists had on our guests and their children last year was amazing. They took time out to chat with the guests and paint with the children and a front row opportunity to learn about the work of a professional artist. The effect they had was truly inspiring and Alan and Karen became friends of us and all. We look forward to our continuing art partnership with's artists and welcoming them to spend time with us at our special place in the Tuscan hills."
