La Rondine Gallery is situated in Ponte a Serraglio in the relaxing commune of Bagni di Lucca. Since the Renaissance, this area has attracted artists of all disciplines to take refuge and rest in its thermal valley and spectacular vistas. The gallery is opposite the Lima River and close to a popular bar IMG_9603and restaurants. Rich Smukler’s solo exhibition will take place from 5/29/2015 thru 6/13/2015 (specific times for the Opening Reception will be forthcoming). Rest assured that the wine will be free-flowing and delicious!
