ARTSWIN exhibits and calls for artists

Bob Ross Portrait Exhibit

Famed art instructor, Bob Ross

The Arts Council has the unique opportunity to display two original Bob Ross paintings in the Bower-Suhrheinrich Foundation Gallery from July 17th – 29th. We are giving local artists the chance to display their work in the same exhibit as the famed art instructor, and what better subject than the artist himself.

All media will be accepted, but the parameter of content is a portrait of Bob Ross. There is no fee to enter this exhibit, and membership is encouraged but not required. Work is limited to one piece per artist.

A special thanks to WNIN and WIPB for coordinating the display of the two orginal Bob Ross paintings!
