On Saturday, March 23, the opening of “The Breath of the Earth,” a solo exhibition by painter, Beppe Gallo, will be held in the Magdalene Choir.

The exhibition, organized by theDepartment of Culture, brings together some 20 works that tell the story of Langa landscapes and Gallo’s look at nature and its colors.

As critic Teresio Polastro writes, Beppe Gallo paints the vitality of these hills in an expressionistic mood.

The red-lit hills, snowscapes, and even more so the reflections on the river, rich in pictorial matter, in the equal exchange between banks and waters, are further enriched with an informal thrust

Beppe Gallo was born in Castagnole delle Lanze on July 19, 1942, and completed his studies at the Classical High School in Alba and exhibited his first works at the “Galeasso” Art Gallery.

In 1964 he attended a course in billboarding in Rome; in the following years he worked as a cartoonist for the weekly “Famiglia Cristiana.”

Began in 1971 to exhibit continuously in private galleries and public spaces.

He was a founding member ofPiedmont Art and Culture in Turin and a member of its board of directors from 1992 to 1998.

From 1993 to 2021, he was a member of the board of directors of the Fine Arts Promoting Society of Turin, and in 2019/2021 he was a member of the artistic commission of the same Society.

The exhibition will be open until April 14.

Theopening will take place on Saturday, March 23, 2024, at 4 p.m. In addition to the presence of the artist and Culture Councillor Carlotta Boffa, art expert Antonio Buccolo will tell about Gallo’s paintings and his artistic vocation.
