“Bob Ross” Cherrywood Challenge 2019

We are thrilled that the exhibit of Bob Ross quilts is being held over until 2021!

What can you create with just five color? Every year Cherrywood Hand Dyed Fabrics challenges artists to create a unique piece of art with a limited color palette. Given simple rules, they were encouraged to push themselves creatively to design an original fiber art piece. In 2019 artists took inspiration from the art and legacy of the late Bob Ross, creator of Public Television’s “The Joy of Painting.”

The cohesive colors, size, theme and texture of Cherrywood make the exhibit one of a kind. There were no limits on technique, so the viewer will see incredible manipulations of fabric in these 20-inch quilts. The collection is stunning and we hope you can appreciate the time and artistry that went into their creation! Cherrywood is proud of this beautiful textile tribute to an iconic man who continues to bring joy to a new generation.
