NDO – A fine art exhibition themed ‘Rencontre 2018’ opened in Ho Chi Minh City on October 15, as part of the activities to mark the 45th anniversary of diplomatic ties.

Co-organised by the Ho Chi Minh City Union of Friendship Oganisations (HUFO) and the Vietnam-France Friendship Association, the exhibition features 42 art works, including paintings in oil, acrylic and lacquer, and sculptures in ceramic, by five French and 14 Vietnamese painters and artists. The works feature images of people, landscapes and still life.

Addressing the opening ceremony, Huynh Van Muoi, Chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts Association, said it is the fourth joint Vietnam – France art exhibition to be held in Ho Chi Minh City.

Through the event, Vietnamese and French artists have a chance to share experience in painting, thus contributing to further tightening the friendship and cooperation between the two countries.

Previously, three joint art exhibitions between Vietnamese and French artists were held in Ho Chi Minh City.

The exhibition runs until October 25.
