About the artist:

Robert Griffing studied illustration and design at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and went on to enjoy a thirty-year career in advertising. His lifelong interest in Native American and colonial history was the result of growing up in western Pennsylvania, where many eighteenth-century historical events took place.

Today Griffing paints the Native Americans of the Great Lakes and Eastern Woodlands. His work has been included in educational packages, TV historical documentaries, the covers of national magazines, and Native American museums and cultural centers, including the Cherokee Emissaries for Peace exhibition at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.

At the 2013 Quest for the West Art Show and Sale at the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, Indianapolis, Indiana, he received the Patron’s Choice Award and the Henry Farny Award for best painting. At the 2009 Quest for the West, Griffing received the Artist of Distinction Award, which entitled him to a large exhibition of his work in 2010. In 2008 he received the Masters of the American West Purchase Award for his painting Council at Slippery Rock Creek at the Autry National Center’s Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibition and Sale. Later that year, at the Quest for the West, he received the Harrison Eiteljorg Purchase Award for his painting Secrets of the Dark Forest. His research and historical accuracy has earned him two awards: the Forbes Medal for his contribution to Pennsylvania history and the Arthur St. Clair Historic Preservation Award.

Griffing exhibits at all the Settlers West shows, the Eiteljorg Museum's Quest for the West Art Show and Sale and the History Meets the Arts Show and Sale in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
