The daily rhythms of a village as captured by painter Ta Thi Thanh Tam are on show at an exhibition in Hanoi.

"Cau chuyen lang que" (Stories about villages) at Italian cultural center Casa Italia in Hanoi features 20 paintings of grazing buffaloes, people going to the market, rope jumping, and other typical rural scenes on paper and lacquer, Tuoi Tre newspaper reported.

"My unforgettable memory about the Vietnamese countryside is the image of little kids at the age of only three or four grazing buffaloes and cutting grass for the cattle," Tam says.

She graduated from the Hanoi University of Fine Arts and is now a member of the Vietnam Fine Arts Association.

Her works have been shown in several countries at group and solo exhibitions, including "The Dragon and the Butterfly" exhibition at the 2006 Vietnamese Cultural Festival in Italy.

The exhibition is open until September 18 and entry is free.

Casa Italia is located at 18 Le Phung Hieu Street opposite the Sofitel Metropole.
