The Arts Inn is an original art gallery in Florence, Italy.
It is based on an innovative concept, as art is exhibited in a completely different way from traditional art galleries:
the space itself is a work of art where the enjoyment of artwork is accompanied by art-inspired signature drinks
and by selected background music.
Guest artists are welcome to apply to exhibit for free in temporary exhibitions.

PAINTINGS BY EMILY ROGERS
Come join us to celebrate! The 8th of March is an important day for the Arts Inn for several reasons.
We have a new exhibition opening; it is International Women's day, and it marks the two-year anniversary from the last normal day before the pandemic reality started in 2020.
Though 2022 does not yet mark an end to that and has brought us yet another worldwide threat, we at The Arts Inn are taking this opportunity to celebrate this anniversary, our community, art and women.
The new featured artist this year is a young painter named Emily Rogers who has a particular talent for portraiture. After completing her studies at the renowned Charles Cecil Studio here in Florence she became an instructor there and continues to work, teach and exhibit her paintings here and abroad.
Through her excellent and subtle handling of the paint, she imbues this age-old genre with a fresh, contemporary feeling. The viewer is invited to engage in silent conversations with the subjects. We hope you will have an opportunity to come see them in person.
The paintings are on exhibit in the gallery and online from Tuesday March 8th 2022.
The permanent collection features a series of contemporary original paintings by the founder of the gallery, artist Peter Thomas Foster.
Some of the paintings employ "Chiaroscuro", the light effect that uses the contrast between a dark background and the light shining on the objects or through the objects, to achieve a sense of depth and the illusion of three-dimensional forms and shapes.
We now have a website dedicated only to this artist, to celebrate his talent. His work can always be seen and purchased at the gallery in Florence and online.
