Vietnam folk painting exhibition opens in Laos

A folk painting exhibition of Vietnam opened in the Lao Capital of Vientiane on January 10 to mark the 81st anniversary of the Communist Party of Vietnam’s foundation (Feb. 3, 1930 - Feb. 3, 2011), the 11th National Party Congress and the Lunar New Year (Tet) holiday.

The 3-day event was co-organised by the Vietnam Fine Arts Museum and the Vietnamese Culture Centre in Laos.

Present at the opening ceremony were the Lao Minister of Information and Culture Mounkeo Oraboune, the Lao Minister of Health Ponmek Dalaloy; the Charge d’affaires of the Vietnamese Embassy to Laos Luong Quoc Huy and other officials from the two nations.

On display are typical folk paintings of Vietnam such as the Dong Ho style (Bac Ninh province), the Hang Trong (Hanoi), the Kim Hoang (Ha Tay province), the Lang Sinh (Hue) and the 19th century’s ancient worship paintings of Nghe An province.

Through its profound contents, the exhibition helps spectators to further understand the quintessential colours and meanings of the Vietnamese folk painting genre, which are made of traditional materials with an original artistry.

The exhibition, which also aims to further strengthen friendly relations between Vietnam and Laos, will be on display until March 10.
