HCM CITY — Professional and amateur artists are encouraged to send their works to the southern region’s largest Lacquer Paintings Exhibition 2020 launched by the HCM City Fine Arts Association.
The exhibit will include a variety of traditional and contemporary works by artists from the city and provinces from the Cửu Long (Mekong) River Delta.
Participants can submit two creative works each to the association's jury.
Works featuring HCM City’s development that reflect the artists’ passion are encouraged.
The organiser hopes the showcase will display a variety of tastes about contemporary southern Việt Nam.
“We want to help young artists develop their careers and help them learn more about art as well,” said a representative of the event’s organising board.
Lacquer is a unique kind of Vietnamese painting and is generally more difficult than other styles of painting.
Lacquer artists often spend one to three years painting one work.
Submissions to the Lacquer Paintings Exhibition 2020 should be sent to the HCM City Fine Arts Association at 97A Phó Đức Chính Street in District 1 before September 2.
The exhibition is expected to open at HCM City Fine Arts Museum on September 13. — VNS
