Current Art Exhibit by Liz Chappie Zoller
Liz Chappie Zoller will exhibit her recent oil paintings in the Atrium Gallery at the Bozeman Public Library May 1st through June 30th, 2016.

Liz Chappie Zoller was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. However she grew up with a passion for all things western - horses, wildlife and rugged mountain landscapes. Her love for the American West continues to influence her artwork today.
Chappie Zoller’s professional career is in technical illustration, graphics and interior design, but she has always enjoyed drawing and painting from life. Her work space, Pearl Snap Studio, is located in a remote valley along the Missouri River north of Three Forks, Montana, where she finds inspiration in the pure light and rich clear colors of Big Sky Country. She draws upon the wildlife, western lifestyle and rugged landscape to provide inspiration for her oil paintings.
Chappie Zoller has a Bachelor of Fine Art from the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Art and Architecture. Other experience includes workshops with landscape artists Frank Serrano and Greg Scheibel, and Native American artist Kevin Red Star and wildlife artist Shannon Troxler. She also did an internship with acclaimed Native American artist DG House.
The exhibition will be on display during Library hours. A percentage of sales will go to the Bozeman Public Library Foundation to ensure continuation of cultural programs at the Library for public benefit.
