Rod Serling's NIGHT GALLERY presents
The SIXTH SENSE exhibition
 A collection of paintings by Jaroslav "Jerry" Gebr


For its syndication release, THE SIXTH SENSE was edited and included with NIGHT GALLERY hosted by Rod Serling. As THE SIXTH SENSE was an hour-long show, and the syndicated version of NIGHT GALLERY was a half-hour show, the episodes were severely edited. Additional paintings were commissioned by Jaroslav Gebr for use during Rod Serling's newly filmed introductions specific to the syndication release.

Paintings for the syndication of season one
Note: Paintings for With This Ring, I Thee Kill!, Eye of the Haunted, and Whipser of Evil are not unique to the syndication package. Each was originally created during production of THE SIXTH SENSE, and is featured prominently within the storyline of their respective episode.




Paintings for the syndication of season two
Notice the change of font for the onscreen titles. This was done to match the font already used by THE SIXTH SENSE for season two end credits (which were used in the NIGHT GALLERY syndication package).
The painting for I Did Not Mean to Slay Thee was originally created for that episode when produced as part of THE SIXTH SENSE and is featured prominently within the story of that episode.
Flying Sepulcher of Death was originally titled Coffin, Coffin, in the Sky when shown as part of THE SIXTH SENSE.
Candle, Candle Burning Bright was originally titled And Scream by the Light of the Moon, the Moon when shown as part of THE SIXTH SENSE. This is often confused with the similarly titled Witch, Witch, Burning Bright from season one.
Five Widows Weeping was originally titled Five Women Weeping when shown as part of THE SIXTH SENSE.



Additional paintings
Below on the left is a painting Gebr originally created for use during the season two opening and closing titles of THE SIXTH SENSE.
Below on the right is an unidentified Gebr painting seen in the syndication gallery. It is not known if this was created for NIGHT GALLERY, THE SIXTH SENSE or some other show. Any additional information would be appreciated.


Other appearances
Paintings for Whisper of Evil and Candle, Candle Burning Bright appear in a 1974 episode of KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER titled The Devil's Platform. They appear slightly modified with a skull replacing the face in each painting.
