HCM CITY (VNS) — An exhibition of paintings and sculptures by 52 well-known artists in HCM City has opened at the city's Fine Arts Association as part of the celebration of Vesak Day, an officially recognised United Nations holiday that celebrates the birth of Gautama Buddha, the founder of Buddhism.
"Proceeds from the sale of paintings will be given to the Buddhism Today Charity Fund and for assistance to cancer patients," said artist Nguyen Dam Thuy, who helped organise the exhibit.
On display are 59 works in oil, lacquer and wood, reflecting a wide range of topics, covering daily life, landscapes, people, lotus flowers and still lifes.
The exhibition will close on May 9 at the venue at 218A Pasteur Street in District 3. — VNS
