River Ayeyawady Gallery will host a collective exhibition in mid-July showcasing works depicting Myanmar’s beautiful landscapes, founder U Nay Min Latt said Friday.
At the exhibition, entitled “WathanU,” painter U Win Sein will display four oil and acrylic creations.
“One of the objectives of the expo is to explore the artistic skills of unknown artists,” U Win Sein said.
The five-day exhibition aims to give particular exposure to artists from Toungoo of Bago Region, where there are no galleries, he told The Global New Light of Myanmar.
The event is scheduled to open to the public from 18 to 22 July, and is set to feature roughly 80 artworks by 19 artists from Yangon, Mandalay and Bago regions in a variety of media and styles.
Subjects include still life, ethnic nationalities, traditional arts and culture. All work will be on sale at reasonable prices, U Win Sein said. The gallery is located on 35th Street (Middle Block) in Kyauktada Township in Yangon.
River Ayeaywady Gallery founder U Nay Min Latt said the gallery will also host a series of upcoming art exhibitions, including another group show this month and a solo exhibition and watercolour event next month.
