Culin’Art Exhibition with artist Bridget March
Today, March 11th, marks the beginning of annual The Culin’Art Exhibition at InterContinental Nha Trang. Last year’s event was held with great success and featured stunning ethnic images by celebrated photographer Rehahn, and a creative culinary journey with Executive Chef, Dennis Barton.
This year, painting is pushed to the forefront, and renowned international watercolor artist, Bridget March. Bridget has spent 5 years researching and painting to capture what she describes as “The Essence of Vietnam”. She will display 19 fantastic artworks, each with its own interpretation of the country, its people, and the landscapes. The paintings will be exhibited across the hotel’s public area, and will illustrate her unique style of painting. Bridget’s art effortlessy marry’s the beautiful use of color and the accentuation of seemingly mundane scenes that are brought to life through her deft hands.
As is customary for the Culin’Art Exhibition, it merges our love of art with gastronomy. This year, Chef de Cusine, Khanh Nguyen and his talented culinary team will provide visitors with a 3-region High Tea experience along with 9 gourmet delights ranging from savory to delectably sweet. The treats will be served with 24 different teas from TWG – the world’s premier fine tea brand.

About Artist Bridget March
“Born in the UK, I am a visual artist working in a range of traditional mediums. I make original artwork and books for people who love Vietnam whether they live here or are just visiting. My books, paintings, drawings and etchings make the experience of being in Vietnam more meaningful and help to explain the cultures, landscapes and history of this beautiful land. What differentiates my work is my perspective; I come to Vietnam with a fresh eye and a curious mind. What I discover and what I draw attention to, is often a surprise to Vietnamese and International audiences alike. It has been said that my pictures capture the essence of Vietnam. Part of the process of my work is to sit, observe, listen to and interact with the subject of my paintings. I don’t work from photographs. Even in the hottest sun and heaviest rain I will at least do a little sketch to commit my emotions to memory. Most of my drawings of Saigon are drawn on the street so I can feel the rush of traffic” – said Bridget.
The Exhibition is free and open to the public, running from March 11th-March 14th.
