Carlo Marchiori is a gifted artist with a refreshing vision. We enjoyed visiting his shop and marveled at the beautiful ceiling. Unfortunately we were not visiting during the time that he opens his residence for viewing on his quided tours...we'll be back!
What an amazing store run by a truly amazing artist. My husband and I have been fans of Marchiori and his amazing art for over ten years. It was a real pleasure when we walked into his store to find the artist himself manning the store.
He obviously loves sharing his home that has been created over a 28 year period. Every square inch of the interior has been adorned with artwork of many genres and periods. Much is done with a sense of humor. The bird cage room is a treat when you close yourself in and see the huge cat staring in at you.... 更多
If you appreciate true art this is a MUST visit. We came for wine and mentioned art to our local friend (mogy) who said it's an amazing experience that can't be missed. He was right - Absolutely exceptional.
A brilliant hidden gem right off the main street. Carlo Marchiori is an incredibly creative artist who works in a wide variety of mediums. You can also inquire about a tour of Carlo's home which open only on Saturdays and is a fascinating place to see.
Love this guy's work! If you have the time, try to visit his home, Ca'Toga Villa, near Calistoga. It's open on Saturdays @ 11 am for tours from May to October. Make reservations ahead.
My wife and I just don't collect art, so browsing the art at the shop was interesting but not our main focus. The ceiling, however is beautifully painted, delightfully detailed, rich vibrant and bold. Just be careful not to knock over a priceless objet d'art as you are gawing at the ceiling.
