  • To reassure his audience, he frequently painted cheerful tiny trees and amiable shrubs.
  • More than 75 unique works, he completed before passing away from cancer in 1995, are on display.
  • Fans of Bob-Ross will have a nice Christmas outing with the exhibit.

Well-known PBS artist Bob Ross was recognized for his amazing perm and half-buttoned shirt, which he used to paint landscapes in his half-hour episode “The Joy of Painting.”

To reassure his audience, he frequently painted cheerful tiny trees and amiable shrubs. Now on view at NC Wesleyan University in Rocky Mount for the next ten days is the largest exhibition of Bob Ross paintings in the world.

More than 75 unique works, including more than 30,000 paintings he completed before passing away from cancer in 1995, are on display. The majority of the pieces in the show were given for PBS fund-raisers, but there are other pieces like “Trapper’s Cabin,” “Rowboat on the Beach,” and “Storm’s A-Comin’,” all tagged with the episodes in which they were produced.

Serious art critics like UNC-Chapel Hill undergraduate Wolf Gordon-Escobar, who is minoring in studio art and compliments Ross on his paintings’ ability to capture color and light, are drawn to the show.

A peek inside the curly-haired painter’s life off-camera is available for the price of admission, with sandwich-board placards providing insider information.

The fact that Ross disliked his well-known hair but dared not remove it since it became so essential to his emblem is one of the facts. Rarely did he paint people, and he insisted that his cabins in the woods never had chimneys. He completed all 403 episodes of “Joy of Painting” for free. When Ross departed the Air Force as a master sergeant, he decided to keep his voice down.

Viewers can watch vintage Ross episodes on a television screen in the museum with the sound off and experience the serenity in his voice and quiet purpose as he repeatedly brings life to inanimate objects. Fans of Bob-Ross will have a nice Christmas outing with the exhibit.
