Overseas Vietnamese painter exhibits in Washington

A painting exhibition by an overseas Vietnamese has just opened at the Washington Printmakers Gallery in the U.S. capital.

The exhibition of works by Nuong Van-Dinh Tran is a combination of traditional Vietnamese and American artistic styles, most notably exhibited by “An Old Oak Tree in Winter.”

Born in Vietnam, Nuong and her family settled in the U.S. in 1950. She was initially trained at the Corcoran College of Art before receiving an MFA from George Washington University.

Her works have featured at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the National Museum of American Art, the Smithsonian Institution, the Library of Congress fine prints collection, and at Moscow’s Pushkin Museum.

The Washington exhibition will close October 28.
