On the Edge by Bonnie Zahn Griffith

Pastel on Paper

12" x 12"

15" x 15" (framed, under glass)

From a show at the Hockaday Museum titled "For the Love of Glacier: Paintings and Photography by Bonnie Griffith and L.R. Newman." Bonnie posthumously collaborated with her distant relative, the late photographer L.R. Newman. Griffith grew up admiring the photos of L.R. Newman’s trips to Montana and Glacier, which reminded her of her own family ranch in Central Montana and her own connection to Glacier. In 2021, she decided to create a new body of work in response to specific photos of special locations.

Going-to-the-Sun Road parallels Saint Mary Lake on the east side of Glacier National Park in Montana. It is the only road that traverses the park, crossing the Continental Divide through Logan Pass. Construction began in 1921 and was completed in 1932. Citadel Mountain (9,035 feet) can be seen in the background of this piece, towering over the western edge of Saint Mary Lake.
