HCMC – Nearly 70 veteran painters are showcasing their artworks at the “Hallmark 2021” exhibition at the Arts Exhibition House in Hanoi.
The exhibition features some 100 paintings and sculptures by established artists from the Elderly Painters Club, most of whom are over 70 years old, such as Nguyen Trong Cat, Tran Huy Oanh, Do Huu Hue, Hoang Cong Luan, Nguyen Van Chung and the 99-year-old painter, Nguyen Minh My.
Luong Xuan Doan, chairman of the Vietnam Fine Arts Association, said the event marks the reopening of the Arts Exhibition House after the social distancing period.
