Bob Timberlake, one of the most revered artists of North Carolina, has been called “the Andrew Wyeth of the South” because of his devotion to realism and his mentorship with Wyeth in his early days of painting. Timberlake’s ability to capture the subtleties of a rural North Carolina landscape or a still life of a rusty enamelware pot resonates with viewers and has helped him establish a large following.
Timberlake was born in Lexington, North Carolina and later attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Timberlake is a self-taught artist, and he had his first exhibition at the Hammer Galleries, New York in 1973. President Jimmy Carter named Timberlake the official artist for the “Keep America Beautiful” campaign in 1978. Timberlake has continued to receive accolades for his contributions to the arts.
Timberlake is also a successful furniture maker and created The World of Bob Timberlake
, a union between his work and the Lexington Furniture company. Timberlake designed and made his first dresser at the age of 14 to 15, and his passion for this craftsmanship has made The World of Bob Timberlake
the highest selling furniture collection in the industry.
