Biography from Frameworks Gallery:
Don Wright is a native of Shreveport, Louisiana, and although he is still a resident of Louisiana, he is quite well traveled. After graduating from Franklin High School in 1957, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy where he served until 1961. Immediately following his military days, Wright joined an exploratory seismographic company that allowed him to experience the glaciers of Alaska and Canada, the beaches of the Bahamas, and most of the terrain between them.

During his time with the seismographic company, his interest in art began to grow. At the age of 24, Don Wright began attending classes at Southeastern Louisiana University. The next four years were spent mostly on conservative studies of art that provided him with a firm foundation in drawing and composition. After he completed his BA, he was accepted to an MFA program at the Pratt Institute of New York. He finished the Pratt Institute in 1970 with an emphasis in painting, drawing, and, what he would later call his favorite medium, sculpture.

While most established Louisiana artists are known for their interpretations of backwater bayous or the View Carre, Wright never seemed to have settled on a particular theme. His style of painting is always unmistakable, but it can be found in subjects ranging from swamps to nudes and courtyards to cabins.

In his own words, Don Wright says of his art: "My intent is to infuse internal reality within the artist with outside stimuli, the product being the finished art object. I deliberately subordinate all questions of style, technique, subject, and medium to this simple credo."

Wright's work is also in the collections of Louisiana State University, the Ziegler Museum, Louisiana's permanent state collection, and many private collectors throughout the South.
