Hanoi (VNA) – A painting exhibition, themed “the Year of the Pig”, featuring 60 works by 33 contemporary painters, is taking place in Hanoi from January 15 to 23.

Painter Pham An Hai from the organising board said paintings on display spotlight the pig – the zodiac sign of 2019 in the lunar calendar.

This year’s exhibition records increases in the number of participating painters and their exhibits compared to last year, he said.

The works’ sizes range under 80x100 cm, making them suitable for art-lovers who cannot afford big paintings.

On the occasion, a conference on paintings in celebration of the lunar New Year is scheduled to take place with the participation of popular names like researcher Phan Cam Thuong and painter Pham An Hai.-VNA
