Nixon Galloway



Nixon (Nick) Galloway was born in 1927.  His interest in aviation started at a young age, as both his father and his grandfather were pioneer aviators in the Los Angeles area in the twenties and thirties.  He spent many happy hours as a child flying with them in the Waco's, Swallows and Stearmans of the day.  

After serving a stint in Naval Aviation in WWII, he took up flying, but with the abundance of pilots coming out of the services, decided to pursue a career as an artist and enrolled at the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles.   He became widely known as a talented aviation artist. 

For many years he worked as a freelance illustrator with clients such as Boeing, Hughes, NASA, Northrop, Allied Signal, American, Hawaiian, Continental and United Airlines. Two notable art series that he produced were the UNITED AIRLINES COLLECTOR SERIES (43 paintings) and the WINGS OF AGRICULTURE calendars (60 paintings). He was an Artist Fellow member and a past president of the American Society of Aviation Artists. 

Nick was also active in the Air Force Art Program and over thirty of his paintings are in the permanent collection.  He held memberships in the Aviation Historical Society, Air Force Association, Naval Institute, the EAA and Red Barons. Nick's work has been exhibited in the White House, Pentagon, Kennedy Space Center, Smithsonian Air & Space Museum, RAF Museum, EAA and Air Force Museums.  He won awards for his aviation artwork in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Dallas, Washington D.C. and Dayton.  In 1999 he had a one-man show in Savannah with over fifty of his paintings on display, some done as long as forty years ago.   When not working in his studio, he could often be found on the ski slopes, or racing his sailboat in Southern California waters.

Nick died in 2003, just two days after his 76th birthday.
