HCM CITY — The International Watercolour Painting Exhibition “Arts and Peace” has opened at the HCM City-based Vietnam Watercolor Art.

The event is co-organised by the International Watercolor Association in Viet Nam and the Sai Gòn Watercolour Club.

The showcase includes 60 paintings by artists from 17 countries such as France, Japan, the Netherlands, Thailand and Viet Nam.

The paintings were selected among more than 300 works displayed at the International Watercolour Exhibition held in Albi, France in October last year.

On display are works about a wide range of topics, including landscapes and lifestyles from all over the world.

According to the organisers, the exhibition aims to bring people around the world closer together amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

At the exhibition’s opening on Wednesday, the organisers awarded prizes, including the first prize to Chinese artist Sun Jiangang for the painting Life And Hope Series II.

The second and third prizes were given to artist Huỳnh Bảo of Viet Nam for Softness, and to Yuko Nagayama of Japan for Spring.

The organisers also gave two exclusive prizes to Vietnamese artists, including Nguyễn Hồng Quan for the painting Bếp Lạnh (Cold Stove) and Thẩm Trọng Hiếu for A Little Boy in Ha Giang.

The exhibition remains open until March 19 at Vietnam Watercolour Art on 187 Le Văn Sỹ Street in Phu Nhuận District. VNS
