Yangon, 12 Aug — A photo exhibition at Yangon Gallery featuring the work of local and foreign photographers is raising money for flood victims, organizer Daw Nila Thu said Tuesday.
“Art for Hope” runs until 13 August at the gallery, and features more than 100 color and black-and-white works donated by 39 photographers, covering a wide range of subjects including the lives and culture of ethnic people.
“On the first day of the event, we sold nearly 15 photographs,” Daw Nila Thu told The Global New Light of Myanmar.
She added: “All works are available for sale both online and at the gallery, with prices ranging from US$30 to $190.”
Those unable to visit the exhibition in person can view works online at https://www.facebook.com/PanoramicMyanmarTravel.
“We plan to donate all money earned from the event to victims from disaster-hit areas, especially in Rakhine State and Ayeyawady Region, through the local non-profit Hope Charity Organization,” said Daw Nila Thu. Yangon Gallery is located within the compound of People’s Park, near the Planetarium Museum on Alone Road. The gallery is planning to host another charity exhibition entitled “Save and Save” on 15 August.—GNLM
