Vietnam’s strong developments as well as its aspiration for sustainable environment have been captured in paintings displayed in Paris’s outskirts city of Accueil.
The exhibition that opened on October 1 is the initiative of Aurore - a non-profit organisation based in France, and the Vietnamese-origin French people's movement (MCFV), aiming to enhance cultural exchange between the two countries.
Aurore Chairwoman Tran Thu Dung said the four-day event features nearly 30 works by eight painters of different ages, which carry the message of environmental protection.
Different materials like lacquer, oil, watercolour or acrylic are used for the paintings.
Within the framework of the exhibition, there were a martial arts performance and other art performances, helping French friends and overseas Vietnamese understand more about Vietnam’s culture.
