The founding principle of Three Graces Galleries is to unite the Italian and UK art worlds: offering art lovers and collectors in the UK the unique opportunity to view, interact with and purchase original fine Italian artworks and meet talented and celebrated Italian artists living and working in Italy today. Our tagline is ‘new renaissance, new philosophy’ because Italian art is in the midst of an exciting new renaissance. The art scene is infused with artists who are reinventing century old techniques and art philosophies for our age. And just as British architects did after embarking on the Grand Tour in the 18th and 19th centuries, our mission is to contribute to bringing the new Italian renaissance to the UK and infusing the art scene with the very particular culture and beauty that belongs to Italy and which the British have long been enamoured by.
Our emphasis is not only on art as aesthetic objects, but on the emotional impact art can have — both on the creator and the observer. Our aim is to hold exhibitions in a recognisable format whilst also extending the usual limits of what people expect from an art exhibition to exploring the potential that lies in art to positively influence individuals and humanity as a whole. Italy is rich with artists who are not only plugged into authentic historic Italian culture but they are also exploring how their artistic expression can improve people’s lives today.
Our unique open access online art journal is dedicated to shining a spotlight on Italian contemporary fine art and creating a centre for philosophical discussion surrounding art culture. From Classical Realism to Hyperrealism, from painting to photography, and illustration to sculpture: Italy is in the midst of a new renaissance and new art philosophies and Three Graces Galleries is your English guide.
" My long journey to building a life in Italy really began as a path to self-discovery: I'd always felt an affinity with the culture, the language and most particularly the art. I am not alone in this I know, and for good reason! Realising that my very being here and witnessing the country's rich past and the wonders being created in the art world right in this moment awoke something in me. I was struck by a kind of calling if you will, to write about what I saw and the artists I met along the way. Three Graces Galleries was born out of that discovery, first of myself, and then something that felt worth sharing -- I hope you enjoy the site and feel welcome to reach out to me at , even if it's just to share your own Italian tales or ask questions!"
