HaNoi, VN - Over 200 paintings and artwork were on display at the HaNoi Fine Art University for the Annual opening of this prestigious exhibition/competition. The event, attended by many foreigners and the diplomatic corps in HaNoi is a joyous happening with music, art, and hundreds of participants.
Every year, on March 26th, the anniversary of the VietNam Youth Union, the much-anticipated event takes place. It is a very exciting occasion for the student, many of who did not have a chance to participate in a large-scale exhibition. The work on display covers many mediums, from oil, silk and gouache paintings, to graphic art works, woodcuts, sculptures and much more. Students submit a wide variety of works, from school assignments, to experimental work.
Many awards are handed to the top students, in many categories and by many organizations. Apart from the departmental awards, there are awards from the Fine Art publishing house, the VietNam Fine Art Association. The small awards are very important to the upcoming artists. The whole event is very exciting and students continue to celebrate late into the night.
