ĐÀ NẴNG — Artists from Đà Nẵng, Quảng Nam and northern provinces have exhibited their 26 silk paintings at the Đà Nẵng city’s Fine Arts Museum till December 4th.

Museum representatives said 11 artists were invited to create the silk paintings.

The exhibition features the beauty of the culture of different regions of Việt Nam and ethnic groups in rural areas.

Silk painting was seen as a unique art in Việt Nam and Asia, but the art is gradually disappearing in modern Việt Nam, with only few young artists training at fine arts colleges nationwide.

The museum, whish locates at 78 Lê Duẩn Street in Đà Nẵng, is the only one of its kind in the Central and Central Highlands region. It displays more than 400 works by artists from the city and provinces in spaces for contemporary fine arts, sculpture and paintings, and regular exhibitions.

The museum is among popular cultural destinations for tourists such as the Chăm Sculpture Museum and the Đà Nẵng Museum.  — VNS
