Local artists on display in Mandalay

An art exhibition featuring work by nearly 100 artists is being held at the Mandalay Hill Art Gallery in central Burma, to celebrate the venue’s 13th Anniversary.

Hundreds of paintings made by artists from central Burma’s Mandalay, Myingyan, Pyin Oo Lwin and Bagan, drawn in watercolour, oil and acrylic, are being exhibited at the gallery located at the foot of the Mandalay Hill.

“We wanted to host an exhibition featuring creations by artists in the Mandalay region exclusively at one venue”, said Moe Myint Tun from Mandalay Hill Art Gallery. “Many of the paintings were drawn right here by the artists.”

The gallery is providing painting materials for the artists at the exhibition to draw landscape paintings to be featured at an upcoming exhibition dedicated only to this genre.

Art fans who come to the exhibition can also have their caricatures drawn by the artists as souvenirs.

The exhibition is held from 27 January to 4 February.
