Art from the heart celebrates International Childrens Day

A sampling of the exhibition with the theme I Draw the Lives Around Me
Local artists are doing what they do best for the sake of disadvantaged children.

More than 50 Vietnamese painters have joined forces in an exhibition, Art for Peace and Children, at Ha Noi’s Opera House in honour of the International Children’s Day on June 1.

The exhibition showcases the works of well-established and up-and-coming artists such as Bui Huu Hung, Tham Poong, Nguyen Minh Quang, Dao Quoc Huy, Nguyen Dinh Quang and Dao Anh Khanh.

Their diverse and eye-catching works, presented on lacquer and in water colours and oils, are a veritable catalogue of contemporary Vietnamese fine art.

"This is our opportunity to make our art a realistic way to help underprivileged children – although the support may not be huge," said painter Bui Huu Hung who is presenting the large-scale lacquer Woman and a Pot.

The events’ organisers, the Viet Nam-Romania Friendship Association, the Viet Nam Union of Friendship Associations, UNESCO Viet Nam and the Viet Nam Commitee for Child Protection and Care, say it is also an attempt to support peace, cultural development and introduce Vietnamese young painters to the public.

And it’s not just the grown-ups who are getting into the act.

Vietnamese children celebrate their day with a series of music, painting and dancing festivities.

In Ha Noi, 700 children aged from four to 15 years gathered at the Viet Nam Centre for Culture and Art Fair and Exhibition to render their daily lives as art.

At the same venue, 40 teenagers from schools for disabled children including the Nguyen Dinh Chieu School for blind children and Xa Dan School for mute and hearing-impaired children performed traditional and folk music and dance routines to applaud the day. — VNS
