Bass, NASCAR’s first officially licensed artist, has been attending
races since he was six years old. While attending his very first race
at Southside Speedway in Richmond, Va., Bass met NASCAR legend Bobby
Allison. This chance meeting influenced Bass to choose his career path
of one day becoming a motorsports artist. From early childhood, Bass’
passion for the excitement and color of racing fueled his desire to
excel in a field that was not yet defined by any job description!
still a student at Virginia Commonwealth University, Bass attended a
race at Talladega and waited for hours in the Alabama heat at the garage
gate to present an original painting to Bobby Allison. The wait was
worth it...Bass came away with three commissions.
graduating from college in 1984, Bass started to write that job
description, contact-by-contact, project-by-project, while maintaining a
fulltime job with the U.S. government. Nights, weekends and vacations
were spent painting and traveling to races.
Bass’ motorsports art
career was in high gear and within a few short years, it had grown to
the point where Bass make the move from his home state of Virginia to
Concord, N.C., to set up shop. Being close to the NASCAR teams was
important if Bass wanted to continue growing his profession. By the
mid-1990s, Bass was creating 50 original illustrations in a single race
season and designing for NASCAR’s top teams.
By the late 1990s,
Bass began to outgrow his first gallery, which was housed in a unique
nostalgic building on the Charlotte Motor Speedway grounds. He then
took another major step in his career and decided it was time to
showcase his artwork and racing collectibles in a public place. The
current Sam Bass Gallery opened its doors on Oct. 4, 2000. It is
convenient for corporate clients within the racing community, race fans
visiting the region and is in close proximity to the teams with whom
Bass works so closely.
Bass’ numerous original paintings and
limited edition prints on display in the gallery document key moments in
our sport, as seen through the artist’s eyes. Also on display is a
sizeable collection of sheet metal, driver uniforms and helmets that
Bass has designed. Cases are overflowing with examples of Bass’ work –
whether it be his paint schemes on diecast replicas, sports collectible,
track mascots, souvenir programs, or unique trophies.
