New European-style gallery opens in the Yellow City
Bridget March, an English painter and writer, who has been working in Vietnam for nearly five years, has opened a new gallery in Hoi An called March Gallery ( www.marchgallery
hoian.com). Bridget’s watercolors, drawings, etchings and paintings have been sold successfully at solo exhibitions throughout Vietnam and have featured in international exhibitions in Hong Kong and Singapore since she first moved to Asia in 2012. She is also the author of two books A Week in
Hoi An and A Summer in Sapa. Her book about Saigon will follow soon.
Apart from Bridget’s wide range of artwork, you will also find work by Dutch contemporary artist Marjon Barton and by internationally renowned Japanese lacquer artist Saeko Ando. The central display of inexpensive prints and books is on a 150-year-old family bed that belongs to the house. The gallery is in the heart of the old French Quarter in one of the old streets of Hoi An known as the ‘Rue des Arts’ because of the number of creative businesses that are gathering there.
