BONNIE ZAHN GRIFFITH c: 1953-

Painting the western landscape in oils and pastels, Bonnie Zahn Griffith brings her world to life on paper and canvas.  A painter and educator, Griffith paints on location throughout the US  and teaches workshops on plein air techniques and the art of pastel painting.  The daughter of Montana ranchers, Griffith learned at an early age about the vast and rugged landscape of the Missouri Breaks of Montana from the back of a horse.  Not always appreciating the fundamental beauty of the landscape, it ultimately became a deep-rooted factor in her work to create a visual story.  

Always an artist (proclaimed at age 5), Griffith however pursued a career in Interventional Radiology that bridged a 30-year span.  Her art endeavors during this time were a source of supplemental income during college years and subsequent gallery representation.  In 2009 Griffith opted to make art her primary business.  Focusing on landscape painting in an impressionistic yet representational fashion, she has gained skills that have opened doors for her in the art world.  Griffith has studied with renowned instructors over her career such as Robert Moore, Lorenzo Chavez, Ned Mueller and Elizabeth Mowry.  Griffith’s approach to her art is that which includes study of color, shapes and values along with experimentation in the techniques of the application of oils and pastels.  A breakthrough in her work came after she began painting plein air studies.  “It is the visual you get when you paint real time in nature that you begin to see so much more; more depth, more color and value  than when painting from photos.” she says.

 

Currently Griffith competes in 6 -12 plein air events annually. These works along with studio paintings are the inventory she creates to fulfill contracts with galleries in Washington, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Utah.  Griffith has works in permanent corporate collections in these states and in private collections throughout the US, Canada, Australia and Europe.  Publications that have included articles about the art of Bonnie Griffith include Pastel Journal, Southwest Art, PSWC’s Pastel Magazine and inclusion in the book Strokes of Genius. Griffith’s work has been included in exhibitions as the invitational Timeless Legacy – Women Artists of Glacier Park, an exhibit of  works of 25 nationally renowned women artists at the Hockaday Museum (Kalispell, MT) 2019, 2020.

 

Some of Griffith’s time is dedicated to instruction.  She teaches workshops in her studio and on location in the utilization of the pastel medium.  She focuses on the principles and rewards of painting plein air, providing a proven method of this application to her students.  Her workshops on the basic principles of plein air painting give beginners the insight to painting on location.

An advocate of Artist’s Residency programs, Griffith believes these settings give the artist the opportunity to immerse oneself into their work and create uninterrupted for a given time.  She has been selected as the Artist in Residence for the Grand Staircase National Monument(2015), The Idaho Art Lab(2019), Whitman Cellars (2000-2007).
