Garfagnana Chairart is a community arts project that has developed over the past 9 years and has involved hundreds of local people and many visitors to the area. We can now safely say that Garfagnana Chairart now acts as a ‘catalyst’ in local community arts. The 2018 collection of chairs so far numbers 37 and without doubt Chairart, in it’s 9th edition, continues to surprise and delight with invention, creativity and artistry. Now the chairs continue to be exhibited in the pop-up gallery at 13 Via Farini, Castelnuovo.
The Garfagnana is both a dramatic and beautiful territory in Northern Tuscany within the province of Lucca, Italy. It follows the valley of the river Serchio between the spectacular Apuane range of mountains and the backbone of Italy, the Appenines.
