The exhibition features 156 works made of oil on canvas, lacquers and sculptures by eight artists including Pham Chinh Trung, Nguyen Thi Lan Huong, Nguyen Thi My and Tan Dinh Cuong.

Pieces depict famous landscapes in the north and some have been inspired from daily life, others are still-life objects.

Those who love Hanoi’s old quarter will see romantic and beautiful settings in Trung’s lacquers. Street vendors, lines of old houses, milk flower trees, cyclos riding along old streets are displayed by Trung’s lively brush. He also depicts other landscapes such as terraced rice fields in Mu Cang Chai, stilt houses in the mountainous region of Ha Giang and Sapa.

Along with bass color tones of Trung, Cuong brings to viewers young and vivid colors in festive seasons in the north such as the flower festival in Hanoi, spring festival in Ha Giang, love duet festival in Bac Ninh or animated spring markets.

Huong is dreamy with flowers and countryside scenery. Her paintings focus on color with the greenness of leaves, white and red or pink of flowers, or golden autumn which will see viewers get lost in the flowers and if they close their eyes they can imagine the peace and calm of the countryside.

Some other pieces capture daily life and human fate.

The exhibition runs until November 7.
