The 2019 Tranh Thủy Mặc (Ink Wash Painting) exhibition showcases 72 paintings by 42 artists who are members of the Chinese Fine Arts Club.
The paintings were created during nine field trips to provinces and cities in the northern, central and Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta regions, organised by the association this year.
Some of these works feature lifestyles of HCM City such as Hẻm Sài Gòn (Alley in Sai Gon) by Huynh Phong, Góc Chợ Bình Tây (A Corner of Binh Tay Market) by Tran Van Hai, and Sân Khấu Đời Người (Tuồng (classical drama) Performers) by Truong Lo.
Vietnamese landscapes, sea and islands are also highlighted in works like Triển Vọng Đảo Lý Sơn (Potentials of Lý Sơn Islands) by Huynh Tuan Ba, Sông Lô Ngư Ảnh (Fisherman of Lo River) by Truong Lo, and Phong Cảnh Tràng An (Landscape of Trang An) by Ly Binh Toan.
The exhibits include mountain-water and bird-flower paintings in traditional styles.
Huynh Van Muoi, chairman of the association, said: “Through the exhibition, Chinese artists want to introduce their latest paintings to colleagues and art lovers in HCM City, and send their love to the art community.”
“The exhibition is also the club’s annual programme to celebrate the August Revolution and National Day.”
The exhibition is open until September 2. The association is at 218A Pasteur Street in District 3.
