Meet Bonnie Zahn Griffith

Oil | Pastels

Born a child of artist parents, Griffith grew up on a ranch near the rough Missouri Breaks in central Montana. This remote area allowed for self-directed adventures and entertainment – drawing, painting, reading, horseback riding and daily ranch chores. Encouraged by her parents, this self-proclaimed artist began creating art at age 5. Famous artists like CM Russell, O’Keefe and Payne became favorite sources of reference and inspirational information.

She has studied with Scott Christenson, Lorenzo Chavez, Robert Moore and other instructors.
Griffith is a Signature Member and executive board member of the Pastel Society of the West Coast, a Signature Member of and past President for the Northwest Pastel Society, a juried member of the Landscape Artists International, Plein Air Painters of Idaho and an associate member of the American Impressionist Society. The current Chair for the Meridian (ID) Arts Commission, she curates and advises the city’s Initial Point Gallery. She is a former Executive Director of WaterWorks Art Museum, Miles City, MT, and has served as a curator for art galleries in Washington, Montana and Idaho.

Living in southwestern Idaho Griffith works out of her Crooked Creek Art Studio, paints at plein air events throughout the western US. She exhibits work at numerous galleries throughout the west including Cawdrey Gallery, Whitefish, MT; Earthworks, Yachats, OR; Combine Art Collective, Walla Walla, WA; and others. She teaches workshops in pastel painting techniques (Studio and Plein Air) and multimedia art. Her workshops are scheduled at various locations in the west and at her studio in Meridian, ID.
