Pictures displayed in the gallery are the artworks of nearly 200 children participating in an art competition organized one month ago.
Participants aged 7 to 14 let their vivid imagination run free, displayed by hundreds of drawings made by colored pencils, wax crayons, and watercolors.
Tens of prizes were awarded to children whose works were highly appreciated by the organizing board including many well-known artists and experts in the city.
The competition and exhibition were held in Ton Duc Thang Museum to welcome the 118th birthday anniversary of the late President.
Mr. Ton Duc Thang was President of Viet Nam from 1969 until his death in 1980.
