This is no happy little accident. The first-ever solo Bob Ross exhibit in Canada will be opening in Penticton, B.C. this spring 2020. If Bob Ross was part of your childhood like he was for many, you'll adore this nostalgic collection.
The soothing sound of Bob Ross’ voice filled our homes when we were young. You may remember him effortlessly painting an entire landscape image in under an hour all while putting us to sleep with his sweet tales.
According to a Facebook post from the Penticton Art Gallery, 32 original Bob Ross paintings will be on display at the unique art show.
“We all know him, we all love him, and now he is coming to OUR happy little gallery,” writes the gallery.
Coming in March of 2020, the Happy Little Accidents exhibit will be the largest Bob Ross show in the country.
Starting March 21, 2020, and running until May 10, 2020, you can visit relive your childhood through his paintings.
While the artist's works will be the main attraction, the gallery is planning additional programming and events in tribute to him.
This will include a Bob Ross Art Battle at Slackwater Brewing to be held in April.
A massive painting and dance party will also be taking place where everyone is encouraged to come dressed up as your favourite happy little character. You can even dress up as the man himself.
According to the post, a designated sponsorship wall will be going up in the galley entrance. Everyone is invited to donate $20 to purchase a “happy little square” to support the children’s programming.
There is no obligation to buy, in fact, the entire exhibition is free for everyone.
While Ross has since passed away, people still pay their respects to the man that helped so many people realize that the little things in life matter.
Even his grave in Orlando is covered with paintbrushes, flowers, and heartwarming memories.
