He collected Cuban art as well as Vietnamese art.”Humphreys said that the Vietnamese believe the face tells everything about the life and character of the person. The Vietnamese don’t pay much attention to what a person says but they look at what a person does and how a person looks. And, it’s the same, Humphreys said, for the hands. Face and hands tell all.

Through their work, the faces and hands do, tell it all.The artwork is unique in the ways that some artists take more of a traditional approach to their artwork while others lean more toward the modern, Jaxon said. “‘Faces of Vietnam’ is an opportunity for visitors to step into another culture through the application of art forms,” Jaxon said. “It is an opportunity to be transported to another place in which to experience the unique applications of art forms.Featured in “Faces of Vietnam” are traditional Vietnamese woodblock prints, gouache on Do paper and mosquito netting and lacquer works inlaid with eggshell, sand and even human hair, together providing the experience of uniquely Vietnamese art forms.Themes of “Faces of Vietnam” range from the minority tribeswomen of the remote highland to the scene of the bombing of the Long Bien Bridge across the Red River to Hanoi.
