Professional and amateur artists are being encouraged to submit their work to the HCM City Fine Arts Association for display in South Vietnam’s largest Lacquer Paintings Exhibition 2020 that gets underway in September. 

The exhibit will include a variety of traditional and contemporary works by artists from the city and provinces from the Cuu Long (Mekong) River Delta.

Participants can submit two creative works each for consideration by the association’s jury.

Works featuring HCM City’s development and that reflect the artists’ passion are encouraged.

The organiser hopes the showcase will display a variety of tastes about contemporary southern Vietnam.

“We want to help young artists develop their careers and help them learn more about art as well,” said a representative of the event’s organising board.

Lacquer is a unique kind of Vietnamese painting and is generally more difficult than other styles of painting.

Lacquer artists often spend one to three years painting one work.

Submissions to the Lacquer Paintings Exhibition 2020 should be sent to the HCM City Fine Arts Association at 97A Phoduc Chinh Street in District 1 before September 2.

The exhibition is expected to open at HCM City Fine Arts Museum on September 13.
