ĐÀ NẴNG — A collection of 62 paintings will be displayed at an exhibition of Vietnamese traditional folk art at Đà Nẵng’s Fine Arts Museum from Thursday until February 25.

The exhibition, the first of its kind held in Đà Nẵng, aims to introduce paintings from the traditional painting villages, including Đông Hồ in Bắc Ninh province; Hàng Trống and Kim Hoàng in Hà Nội; Vũ Di in Vĩnh Phúc and Độc Lôi in Nghệ An Province.

Painting villages have survived in Việt Nam for centuries, despite often warning popularity.

The exhibition organisers will allow visitors to watch and be guided by artists attending the show.

Visitors can explore the skills and techniques used by artists to produce the colourful art forms.

The exhibition will open at 4pm at 78 Lê Duẩn Street in Đà Nẵng on Thursday.

Children can explore the art from 3pm to 5pm on February 3 and 4.

The exhibition also celebrates Tết, the Lunar New Year. — VNS
