Screaming Sky Gallery is opening "Happy Little Trees," a Bob Ross art appreciation show. The gallery is curated by Seattle-area artist Aaron Jasinski, who was inspired by "public television phenomenon Bob Ross." On the website, Jasinski writes:
I'm sure most of us visual artists, a generation of artists in fact, were in some way, large or small, influenced in our formative years by this iconic pop-artist. For this show the invited artists were asked to take that influence and turn it into a work of art. Whether they think Bob Ross is cliche, kitsch, or amazing I hoped they would pay tribute to his style or react against it.
The show features work by 27 artists and will run until Oct. 21. Below is one of the paintings featured, "Revenge of the Ross," by artist Casey Weldon.
