Highpointe Residents Host Local Painter

Six of his paintings which have been donated anonymously to the apartment complex will be displayed and dedicated.  

According to his website, Griffing grew up in Linesville, PA where he roamed he fields and beaches around Pymatuing Lake collecting stone artifacts. After graduating from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, he worked for an advertising agency for 30 years. His love of history and native cultures made him pursue the Eastern Woodland Indian of the 18th century. Paintings depicting Forts Duquesne and Pitt, the Battle of Bushy Run and numerous other historical scenes of that period have become well-known locally.
