The “Ve nen yeu thuong” (Painting Love) exhibition will feature 50 oil and watercolor paintings by 26 young artists in HCMC and others from fine arts centers. According to the organizer, the exhibition has received huge support from donors and collectors at home and abroad.

Some artworks on display at the exhibition depict familiar topics in daily life such as “Hoa cuc dai” (Wild daisies) by artist Thao Nguyen, “Saigon Mua” (Rain in Saigon) by Thuy Duong and “Cho Tet Ha Noi” (Tet Market in Hanoi) by Trang Tseng.

Founded five years ago, The River Art is a gathering place of young painters who share the same desire of creating artworks to help unlucky children.

The exhibition will last until September 13 at 218A Pasteur Street in District 3, HCMC.
