The one-day expo, entitled “Giai Dieu Thu Ha Noi” (Hanoi Autumn Melody), organized by the Hanoi College of Art, was held on October 1 at the Vietnam Fine Arts Museum, 66 Nguyen Thai Hoc Street, Ba Dinh District.
It featured 70 representative artworks, centered on the autumn theme, from 21 artists and successful painters who are either lecturers or former students at the college, including Vuong Duy Bien, a sculptor who is also the Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports, and Tourism, and Nguyen Ha Bac, a director.
The works, made from a wide range of materials, including oil paintings, bronze sculptures, and classic lacquers, reflect the artists’ perception of autumn and unique moments in the everyday life of Hanoi.
