Ron Campbell, legendary animator of beloved childhood characters including Scooby Doo, Smurfs, Jetsons, Flintstones, and Winnie the Pooh made a special appearance at C. Parker Gallery this weekend.
Fans of all ages enjoyed Campbell’s original artwork on display. “Ron is amazing,” said Tiffany Benincasa, gallery principal. “To see grandparents, parents my age and their children recognizing Ron’s cartoons, his artwork spans three generations.”
Visitors who purchased artwork watched Campbell paint his autograph with their favorite cartoon character, a personalized childhood memory.
Campbell is globally recognized as one of the original animators of the Beatles’ classic animated film Yellow Submarine. This year marks the film’s 50th anniversary and Campbell’s Beatles cartoon paintings were highlighted at the pop art show.
The event, part of an ongoing series by C. Parker Gallery, focuses on the intimate connection between the music and art worlds. Last month, the original artwork of Jerry Garcia was featured.
