NDO - A fine arts exhibition opened in Hanoi on October 4, showcasing 250 paintings, sculptures and graphic works that depict the beauty of the Vietnamese capital city.

The works on display have been selected from over 700 works created by artists who are members of the Hanoi Fine Arts Association.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, the association chairwoman Pham Kim Binh stated that the exhibition is a breath of fresh air with various styles and notable differences thanks to the wide participation of many artists, especially young ones.

With over 30% of the artists being young people, the exhibition shows a hopeful sign for the capital city’s fine arts, emphasised Binh.

Speaking at the exhibition, Chairman of the Hanoi Literature and Arts Union Tran Quoc Chiem stated that besides an elegant and gracious Hanoi of the past, the works also depict a city in an age of development and international integration.

Key themes of the works on display include Hanoi scenery, the Old Quarter, portraits and children, a city for peace, and a city in development.

Since the geographical boundary of Hanoi has been expanded, the mountainous theme also features prominently in many works.

The exhibition is taking place at the Vietnam Exhibition Centre for Culture and Arts at 2 Hoa Lu Street and will last until October 13.
