A total of 30 artworks were created with plaster carvings or painted with oil, acrylics and gouache on “dó” (poonah) paper, a paper traditionally made from the inner bark of the dó tree in Vietnam, and old newspapers by 17 G39 painters, five of whom are children.

The youngest among the child artists is just four years old while the oldest are 13.

It is an annual exhibition by the G39 artists who had to hold this year’s event virtually because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Mid-Autumn is a festival, a reunion,” said painter Le Thiet Cuong of the group. There is nothing cozier that the painters and their latest artworks reunite for the festival again this year, even just in an online event, he said.

The exhibition will run until the end of this month.

Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the children's festival in Vietnam, takes place on the 15th day of the 8th month on lunar calendar, which is also the brightest and full moon day of the year. This year the festival falls on September 21.
