The exhibition "Spring Rain" introduces Truc chi paintings by students of Tinh Truc Gia. The most characteristic feature of Truc chi art is works composed on paper made from bamboo, neohouzeaua, water hyacinth, corn, ... Images and patterns on paper are created by using water pen right on the wet paper, then dry it. The price of the painting is about one million dong.

During the exhibition, Phan Hai Bang, a painter who guided the Truc chi art to students, shared: “The Truc chi art is just a means to help you send messages. Your inner world is as simple and expansive as a field of wild flowers. You are less overwhelmed by the force of beauty, so composing is a natural work, an overwhelming outflow from unconsciousness, memory and feeling. There is no reason to decide the drawing; only your hands are guided by what is in your inside at that moment.”

Within the framework of the exhibition, the Tinh Truc Gia Center also held activities such as sharing stories about how you made paintings; how "butterflies" contain happy messages for visitors. Mr. Pham Van Tu, Director of Tinh Truc Gia Center, said that the painting exhibition and story sharing activities were also an occasion for practitioners' families to see their spiritual "healing".
