The art exhibition named "From fall into summer" is destined to transfer the artist's warm-hearted feelings to the visitors.

The visitors to the opening ceremony of the exhibition - from students to senior citizens - shared the common feeling of love for Russian art.

Visitor, said, "China and Russia developed the mutual cooperation in liberal arts. This kind of art exhibit focuses on senior citizens and Chinese students, especially those who studied in Russia."

He also pointed out that China and Russia developed mutual cooperation in arts. Further collaboration in this field will be discussed at the Russian-Chinese meeting of humane cooperation, which takes place in Moscow later this month.
