Vietnamese artist groups in two major cities of Vietnam have showcased their work in two art exhibitions to fundraise for children receiving cancer treatment in local hospitals.

One of the art exhibitions, themed ‘Ve Len Yeu Thuong’ (Paint Love), held by The River Art on the second floor of Bitexco Tower in District 1, Ho Chi Minh City opened on Tuesday, dedicated to growing support for children with cancer being treated at Children’s Hospital 2.

The event concluded on Friday, according to the art center.

The exhibition showcased 20 oil and water coloring paintings created by the group’s members.

Works like Am by Huu Phat, Duong Len Muong Lat by Huynh Thao, Hung Dong by Van Hien, Nang Trua by Hoang Phong, and more feature warm tones to dignify the splendor of nature.

All money generated from selling the artworks would go towards treatment for children with cancer at Children’s Hospital 2.

Formed in 2012, The River Art, located on 60/38 Ly Chinh Thang Street, has gathered artists who devote their works and passion in support of unfortunate and underprivileged children.

Previously, the children’s paintings exhibition ‘Talent Incubator,’ held at the Center of Fine Arts, Photography in Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi, from April 10 to 14, showed artworks created by more than 100 students, aged five to 15, from art classes at Azedesign and Art Talent.

The exhibition featured works covering different topics, including family, festivals, history, folk tales, animal kingdom, plant kingdom, ocean, and more, with an aim to raise money for children at K Hospital in Hanoi, Luu Kim Khanh, Azedesign manager, said.

The event was organized under the wish of the center’s students, Khanh added.
