This painting captures a compelling, if horrific, scene where young people have been kidnapped by Native Americans and are being transported to a fateful location. "This is a painting," said Wright, "that is very meaningful to me. It describes a scene that unfortunately often beset settlers during the westward expansion of our country. The conclusion is left to the viewer, but it is ominous. The painting is also one of my personal favorites. As history, the story I tried to depict is dramatic and arresting, as symbolism, it presents a range of involving elements, and as technique, it fulfilled my rigorous objectives. I've tried to draw the viewer into the subject matter in a compelling and lasting way."

In Indianapolis, at the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art 2008 Quest for the West art show, "The Captives" garnered two significant awards: "The Victor Higgins Work of Distinction for Best Individual Work, and the "Patron's Choice Award." Mr. Wright was the only artist who was honored with two awards.
