The exhibition to be held in the Dongcangli Art Gallery in Jiangmen till April 7 will showcase over 100 paintings by 12 artists in countries along the One Belt and One Road.

Speaking on behalf of all the artists whose works are on display, Wang Qijun, a professor at China's Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, said that the Silk Road was not only a road for Asia and Europe to exchange needed goods, but also a road to exchange Eastern and Western cultures.
Today, we will continue to capitalize on the Silk Road to connect the people of Asia and Europe, and promote the economic and cultural development, he said.
