Happy Accidents: An Exhibit of Original Bob Ross Paintings

Admission is free, but daily timed tickets are required.

"The Franklin Park Performing and Visual Arts Center in Purcellville, Virginia, is pleased to announce the first exhibit of original Bob Ross paintings on the East Coast. This exhibit, presented in partnership with Bob Ross Inc., offers a rare opportunity to view original works created by the artist during his long-running series on public television and represents the first time his collection will be on public display on the East Coast.

Ross started painting as a young man after he was transferred to Alaska while serving in the Air Force. Having been raised in Florida, he was immediately captivated by the snow, mountains and breathtaking nature scenes, all of which would become favorite features in his paintings. Ross later returned to Florida, but he frequently visited Bob Ross Inc. headquarters in Northern Virginia for business meetings. He enjoyed antiquing and often found himself in Purcellville, searching through the many antique treasures of western Loudoun. “It’s quite poetic that his first major exhibit would be in Purcellville,” says Joan Kowalski, President, Bob Ross Inc."
