Hold onto your paint brushes, Bob Ross is coming to Penticton in 2020.
To be more specific, 32 of the late painter’s works will be on display at the Penticton Art Gallery in its upcoming exhibition, Happy Little Accidents.
Ross was an American painter best known for his hit TV show, The Joy of Painting, that provided instructions for viewers follow along and paint at home.
In an announcement made online today, the gallery said this will be its largest exhibition and the first solo museum exhibition of Ross’ work in Canada.
The exhibition will be on display in the gallery, located at 199 Marina Way, from March 21 to May 10.
The gallery is partnering with Slackwater Brewing, located at 218 Martin St., for a Bob Ross Art Battle in April, a giant paint-in party. A costume dance party will be happening at the art gallery on the opening night.
Businesses and organizations interested in sponsoring the exhibition and supporting the gallery’s children’s programming can purchase a square on a Bob Ross painting sponsorship wall.
Squares are available immediately for $20 each and can picture your name and/or business or organization logo.
