Yangon, 26 March—An exhibition showcasing the work of Yangon artists, with a focus on the city’s heritage, opened Wednesday at River Ayeyawady Gallery here.
“We Live in Yangon” runs from 25 to 31 March, with more than 30 paintings by eight young artists in a variety of media.
The one-week event looks at the history of Yangon and the everyday lives of its residents, Artist Min Thurein told The Global New Light of Myanmar.
Some paintings touch on themes of material wealth and morality, according to 25-year-old artist Myo Swe Thein, who said, “Accumulation of wealth leads to a decline in values.”
“Apart from an acrylic painting, all paintings on display at the gallery are on sale, with prices ranging from US $200 to $2,000,” Min Thurein said.
Some of the artists have plans to hold solo shows in Yangon later this year to gain greater exposure for their work.
The gallery is located on 35th Street (Middle Block) in downtown Yangon. GNLM
