A COLLECTIVE art exhibition is being held at River Ayeyawady Gallery, with a focus on showcasing the artists’ selected contemporary works that reflected the country’s traditional arts and culture.
“Great White” opens 26 December and runs until 30 December, featuring 59 works by the four local artists—Nandar Hlaing, Zay Latt Khaing, Thit Nay San and Kaung Thit—in a wide range of styles and media.
Visitors can enjoy diverse range of artworks highlighting lives of grassroots people, beauties of landscapes and traditional umbrellas, and images of Buddha with lotus flowers, River Ayeaywady Gallery founder U Nay Min Latt said.
All paintings are available for sale during the event with prices ranging from US$114 to $500.
This is the first time the four artists have gathered in the same group with the aim of gaining greater exposure for them, said Nanda Hlaing who created 18 acrylic works for the event, with plans to exhibit his fourth solo show next year.
Zay Latt Khaing, a prominent tattoo artist, who created 20 works for the show, said he has a plan to hold an abstract art exhibition next one or two months in Yangon in cooperation with his friends and teachers from the National University of Arts and Culture (Yangon).
River Ayeyawady Gallery is located on 35th Street (Middle Block) in Kyauktada Township in downtown Yangon. The gallery will host a group event next month, according to the gallery founder.
