Changjiang Weekly - - EVENTS - By Zhou Manzhen

The first In­ter­na­tional Ex­hi­bi­tion of Chil­dren's Paint­ings kicked off at Tanghu Mu­seum of Art on May 27. On dis­play are 100 paint­ings from chil­dren home and abroad.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is coor­ga­nized by the Wuhan Peo­ple's As­so­ci­a­tion for Friendship with For­eign Coun­tries, WEDZ (Han­nan District) Fed­er­a­tion of Trade Unions, and Tanghu Mu­seum of Art.

The ex­hi­bi­tion's or­ga­niz­ers have re­ceived a to­tal of 686 paint­ings from chil­dren liv­ing in Wuhan. Among them, 566 were con­trib­uted by Chi­nese chil­dren from Wuhan, Tai­wan, and Hong Kong and 120 from coun­tries such as the U.S.,

U.K., France, Rus­sia, Ja­pan, Canada, Aus­tralia, the Republic of Korea, Ukraine, Pak­istan and Sri Lanka.

After strict eval­u­a­tion by ex­perts, 100 paint­ings were se­lected for the ex­hi­bi­tion. Among them, 67 are from China and 33 are from other coun­tries.

Fre­quent sub­jects un­der the brushes of for­eign chil­dren are land­marks in Wuhan such as the Yel­low Crane Tower and the Hankou Cus­toms House, which re­flect a fruit­ful cul­tural ex­change be­tween Wuhan and the rest of the world.

The free ex­hi­bi­tion continues un­til July 2.
