Art exhibition highlights ancient imperial cities
Update: Jun 07, 2010
A painting-photo exhibition depicting five ancient imperial cities kicked off in the central city of Hue on June 4. The event, held by Hue Culture and Arts Association, is part of activities to welcome the Hue Festival 2010 and the 1,000th anniversary of Thang Long-Hanoi.

Through 110 photos and 73 paintings made of different materials, including lacquer, silk, oil and sculpture, the artists have depicted land and people in five ancient capital cities of Phu Tho, Ninh Binh, Hanoi, Thanh Hoa and Hue, highlighting Vietnam’s traditional cultural values.

The event, which will go on until June 14, also severs as a bridge connecting photographers and painters in their carreers.

Earlier, a similar exhibition took place in the midland city of Viet Tri, Phu Tho Province and another will be organised in Hanoi.
