HCM CITY— An exhibition by artists of the HCM City Fine Arts Association has opened in HCM City to raise funds to help disadvantaged children in Tà Nung Open House in Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu Province.
The event displays 40 paintings by Nguyễn Thị Tâm, Cổ Văn Hậu, Như Khôi, Hồng Phượng and Hà Nguyễn, and its underlying theme is “All for Children of Tà Nung Open House.”
All the paintings were selected from their latest collections of landscapes, daily life and ethnic minority women and children in remote areas across the country.
“These works are by artists who want to show their love for life, women and children. They have captured the hearts of viewers," said Trần Tuấn Anh, a first-year student at the HCM City University of Fine Arts, who visited the event’s opening ceremony on Monday.
Some paintings were sold for more than VNĐ170 million (US$7,600) on the first day.
The exhibition is on display at the HCM City Exhibition House, 92 Lê Thánh Tôn Street, District 1.
It will close on November 13. All proceeds will be used to buy food, clothes and 1,000 books for the children. — VNS
