These two amazing artists, David Wright and Chuck Creasey, were soldiers on the ground during the Vietnam War, and both kept journals of drawings and writings about their experiences. The exhibit dips into their personal archives to show these early artworks, created when just staying alive was a daily triumph, as well as works painted later from photos taken in Vietnam and works from a trip to Vietnam taken fifty years later. Both men pursued careers in advertising art, and also became award-winning fine artists.
Creasy is a lifelong watercolorist who trained with John Pike after Vietnam. Born in Westmoreland, he now resides in Hendersonville.
Wright has become a recognized historic authority, movie consultant, and award-winning artist portraying pioneer life, the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, western exploration, and Native Americans. Raised in rural Kentucky, David now lives just outside Gallatin.
