Raleigh Artist Jason Craighead Launches Website
After years of having his work available for viewing online solely through gallery websites, artist Jason Craighead of Raleigh, N.C., has just launched his own website: www.jasoncraighead.com.
The new website features a continuous slide show of the artist’s recent works on the landing page, along with notices of current and upcoming exhibitions. The muted background suggests the “passionate and emotionally charged evolving exploration of line and space” that Craighead says defines his current work.
From the landing page, visitors can click on “works on paper” and “works on canvas and panel” to see more available paintings. The new website’s “contact” page features the galleries that represent the artist — including Somerhill Galllery in Durham, Broadhurst Gallery in Pinehurst, Anne Irwin Fine Art in Atlanta, Georgia, and Bucks Gallery of Fine Art in Newtown, Pennsylvania.
The site also features an “about the artist” page that offers more detailed background into the evolution of a painter who has become well known in the North Carolina art scene. The page includes listings of group, two-person and solo exhibitions, publications where Craighead’s work has been featured, select public and private collections, and his professional experience serving as a juror for art exhibitions and as a member of the Public Art Committee for the City of Raleigh Arts Commission until 2011.
Jason Craighead’s next major exhibition of his work will be a solo show at Somerhill Gallery in August. More details will be available this summer at www.somerhill.com. For more information on the artist and to see his most recent work, go to www.jasoncraighead.com.
