The event is a cultural exchange organized by the Vietnamese embassy in the US to commemorate the 67th anniversary of Vietnam’s National Day (September 2).

The paintings on display represent a wide range of styles and media, from traditional techniques such as lacquer and oil on canvas, to unique materials like rice bags.

The 30 paintings by seven artists depict Vietnam from its struggle for national independence to its current stage of development, offering the American audience a broad view of daily life in the country including family love, beautiful Vietnamese women in ao dai (traditional long dress) and changes in the capital city of Hanoi.

The exhibition features artists Hong Viet Dung, Dao Thanh Duy, Bui Huu Hung, Pham Luc, Tran Luu My, Dinh Quan, and Le Thanh Son, some of whom are self-taught, and some received a classical art education. All seven artists have shown their work internationally in Asia, Europe and the United States.

Here are some photos:
