Exhibition sends message on environmental protection

An exhibition of landscape paintings entitled “The Echo of Nature” is underway at the Vietnam Fine Arts Museum in Hanoi. Through the paintings which showcase the beauty of Vietnam’s countryside and its ethnic minority people, artists hope to send messages about environmental protection and climate change to the audience.


“O nhiem moi truong nuoc” (Water pollution), “Doi troc” (Bare hills), “Tieng vong tu moi truong” (Echo of nature), and “Vo de” (Untitled) are among the 74 artworks from 60 artists who took part in a field trip to Vietnam’s northern mountainous area.

In addition to works focusing on Vietnam’s natural beauty or the daily lives of its ethnic minority people, there are also several that reflect activities blighting the area, such as littering, deforestation, and the hunting of endangered animals, among others.

The exhibition does indeed provide useful messages that will contribute to increasing awareness about environmental protection, especially among the younger generation.

It is open until June 26./.
