HCM CITY —  The Giao Mùa (Transitional Season) exhibition at Apricot Gallery in HCM City features colourful images of flowers, houses and canals in rural areas. 

Rural women in sunlit scenes of daily life are depicted in 25 works by artists Nguyễn Văn Đức, Lê Trần Hậu Anh and Nguyễn Nhật Dũng.

Đức’s vivid works share his love and passion for life, while the paintings of Anh and Dũng create a door to rural life by using neutral colours and images of plants and water.

"Paintings by artists at Giao Mùa are like photographs portraying life and people. After a hard day’s work, I feel relaxed looking at their art," said Trần Tố Nga, a second-year student at HCM City Fine Arts University.

The exhibition at 52 Mạc Thị Bưởi Street in District 1 will close on Saturday. — VNS
