Award winning artist Robert Griffing will be at Lord Nelson's Gallery for a book signing and art show with a collection of his art prints and original paintings. He will be signing copies of his third art book, An Amazing Journey, with over 130 of his paintings done in the past ten years.
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 dozens of books and national magazines, and Native American museums and cultural centers, including the 2007 exhibition "Emissaries of Peace", at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C.
