Herbert Creecy1939-2003

Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia

$10,000 to photograph and film the painter’s work and studio in preparation for a DVD, overseen by museum director Annette Cone-Skelton. An important figure to Southern abstract art, Creecy lived and worked in Georgia where he taught at the Atlanta College of Art and the University of Georgia. His large expressionistic works are painted with exuberant gestures of multi-colored layers and squiggles that often reference either landscape, nature, current events, or feelings.
