This year's exhibition focuses on the beautiful landscapes, profound culture, and great achievements of the district, and is themed around the 70th anniversary of the founding of People's Republic of China.

Nearly 100 artists from the city's artists and calligraphers associations visited the district and have produced a number of impressive works since the beginning of September. In the end, 24 Chinese paintings, 20 Western-style paintings, and 37 calligraphy works were selected for the exhibition.

In addition, five famous calligraphers from Hanzhong's calligrapher association in Shaanxi province have been invited to present their calligraphy works at the exhibition. This is meant to symbolize the cultural integration and economic cooperation between Gangzha district and Ningqiang, a county in Shaanxi province.

After ending on Dec 25, the exhibition will be held again during the Spring Festival.
