HCM CITY — A new exhibition featuring women and love by six young artists is on display at the HCM City Fine Arts Association celebrating Valentine's Day.

The event called Mùa Yêu Thương (Season of Love) introduces a series of 100 works by Tạ Thị Bê, Vũ Thị Cúc, Đinh Thảo Nguyên, Nguyễn Hoàng Diệu, Nguyễn Văn Thạnh and Hữu Thanh Tùng from the art club Saigon Art Gallery.

Highlighted paintings are on canvas, acrylic and watercolour featuring women, flowers and love along with southern culture and lifestyle.

The artists’ art reflects life and women. Their paintings of women are beautiful and honour women as they love and are devote to the world.

Female artists Vũ Thị Bê, Tạ Thị Cúc and Đinh Thảo Nguyên use vivid colours to send their messages of art. Their paintings are very Vietnamese.

Male artist Nguyễn Văn Thạnh is a professional in oil and lacquer arts. He finds himself while painting the beauty of rural areas of the Cửu Long (Mekong) River Delta region and local women in daily life. His works introduce the culture and lifestyle of the South to viewers.

His previous solo exhibition of 50 oil paintings called Câu Hò Sông Hậu (The Folk Song of the Hậu River) was organised at the city’s Youth Cultural House last year. It also featured female farmers of Southern provinces.

“Paintings from the exhibition Mùa Yêu Thương are different in materials but share the same topic of love for women,” said Trần Minh Thắng, a final-year student at the HCM City University of Fine Arts.

Mùa Yêu Thương will close on February 16 at 218A Pasteur Street in District 3.— VNS
