Bob Ross, best known as the genial host of the PBS show The Joy of Painting, is the subject of a new art show in Vancouver. Happy Little Clouds, named after one of the expressions Ross used in his show, opens tonight (Feb. 22, from 7 p.m. – 2 a.m.) at the Fall Tattooing and Artists Gallery (644 Seymour St.).
The show is curated by Christina Chant. Previously, Chant has held art shows that paid tribute to Bill Murray, the Spice Girls and Snoop Dogg. Submissions are generally open to anyone, from amateur to experienced artists, as long as the pieces have something to do with the subject. Experimenting with different media is encouraged, making for some very interesting pieces.
