Brilliant gallery curated with love.
Aug 2021
I visited the Kalpa Art Living Gallery in Volterra when i was on vaccation in the area. As an artist interested in the gallery i was welcomed by the curator Eleonora Raspi, who took herself a generous amount of time to give me a tour through the premises. She showed me the exciting works of international artists exhibited in the gallery as well as giving me an insight into the restoration process of the interior itself. It is a really beautiful ambient and it´s not the usual white-wall gallery, but a lovely curated space where the Kalpa Art Living team has stripped down the walls to one of the original layers of plastering. This makes for a unique experience, where the displayed artworks and the interior work together as a holistic design.
Furthermore it was a pleasure talking to Eleonora and i felt very welcome.
I recommend this place for everyone who is interested into contemporary art in a wide range of materials, such as wood, ceramics, stone and metal. You can see large scale wall pieces alongside meticulous ceramic bowls, stone sculptures and wooden vessels and more by international artists. If you are anywhere near in Tuscany, it´s definately worth to make a visit to Volterra in general and the gallery in paticular.

The Art Buyer's Paradise: A Contemporary Tuscan Gem
Jun 2021
Kalpa Art Living is an ethereal experience from beginning to end and fully immerses you inside the world of the contemporary art of Tuscany and Beyond. The owner, Olga Niescier, has dedicated her life, artistic talent, and incredible ability to work with her team and key artists, to create a world-class art experience for the sophisticated art buyer of tomorrow.

The work housed inside this stunning jewel box interior is unique because all pieces demonstrate an extraordinary richness, cultural depth, and integrity in materiality, that contemporary art often lacks. The historically renovated interiors and the careful curation of well-known artists and sometimes undiscovered hidden talent, makes this a key landmark to visit while in Tuscany.

The quality of the work showcased creates an atmosphere that is intellectually stimulating, delightful, and evocative. As an American Interior Designer who has curated art all over the world for luxury clientele, I can enthusiastically recommend this gallery to the public, similarly to how I recommend Kalpa Art Living, their recommendations, and expertise in fine art to my own clients.

The quality and integrity of the material shown in all of the pieces, meticulous research done by Olga's team done prior to showcasing artists, and attention to detail they provide to clients is unparalleled. These 3 aspects make for peace of mind when choosing to invest in pieces that one can simply not access anywhere else in the world.

Wonderful
Jul 2020
I spent the day in Volterra in Septembe 2019, and to my delight I discovered the best gallery I had encountered on my 3-month journey. The atmosphere, the lighting, the wonderful owner/director Olga, and of course best of all - the ART! Fabulous, interesting and a must stopby if you visit Volterra (or anyplace closeby). I loved some of the artwork so much that I have continued to do business with them, across the seas, since what they offer is unique and of the utmost quality. As an art buyer, and consultant, I cherish these finds!

A warm and welcoming space

Such a lovely experience to visit Kalpa Art's well-curated gallery. The soothing colours and textures were a feast for the eyes. This must be the most "livable" gallery I've ever been to... I could have moved right in. :)
