From the organizer:
After three acclaimed annual open exhibitions from 2013 to 2015, the Fourth Hanoi Open Exhibition exhibiting works from both professional and amateur Vietnamese and international artists, is unrivaled for diversity of artwork.
Over the past two decades there has been phenomenal and unprecedented artistic, commercial and social development in Vietnam. Hanoi remains central to the country’s creative community. Contemporary Vietnamese artists have become respected around the world for their resourceful approach, cultural and social dialogue and creative sensitivity. Likewise, foreign artists are increasingly finding Hanoi and Vietnam an invaluable source of inspiration for their own work.
There is no central theme to the Open Exhibition but previous shows have been heralded as being vibrant, energised and stimulating. Artists are invited to submit a maximum of two pieces, which are then considered by a panel of both local and international art experts before being curated for display. The exhibition is a unique showcase for art in a variety of mediums; painting, sculpture, photography and print, and is as much an opportunity for art enthusiasts as it is for the artists themselves.
Collectively the first three Open Exhibition’s had exhibited over 350 works by over 200 artists. Over 2000 visitors have enjoyed the exhibitions and tours and school trips are also offered to further engage the Hanoi community. It is expected that this year’s show will exceed the figures of previous years.

This week will have a FREE open art/sticker making workshop. I will be providing all the art supplies for you to create whatever you want for free. I will have multiple types of paper (regular A4, Heavier A4, watercolor paper etc), lots of different types of markers, pens, colored pencils, paints, and various other materials. You are welcome to use any and all of my materials to create and design whatever art you would like. You are of course also welcome to bring your own materials if you wish.
After creating designs you will have the option to submit your designs for me in order to have them made into stickers. I will scan, edit (color adjustment, minor clean up), and order stickers for you based on your designs for 2,000 VND per sticker. If you prefer to make and order your own stickers, I will provide information with where I have my stickers ordered from here in Hanoi.
If you would like to make some art, stickers, or just come hang out and enjoy the space, then come stop by to say hi and grab a glass of wine or a cup of tea.
