These exhibitions mark the beginning of the Year of Sandro, kicking off a series of events celebrating the special moments of Sandro Negri's life and painting. This month we will be celebrating the Passagio di Vita or Walk of Life series, curated and largely created in 2012, in Portland. Palm Springs features the Archives group, originally curated in 2013 and featuring works from Sandro's personal collection. Rocco Proce, a good friend and associate of Sandro's from Mantova Italy, will be at both receptions. He'll share personal stories and answer questions about Sandro's life and work. Many of you will remember Rocco from previous visits with Sandro.
Ask Brian to tell you about the connection between "Il Gregge" and the poet Virgil.
Many of the paintings in "The Walk of Life" were originally painted on long strips of canvas with painted film sprockets on the edges. These paintings have now been separated into individual works.
