April 30, 2009 (RALEIGH, NC) — 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.
Designed by 8 Dot Graphics, the new site 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. “Press and reviews” takes visitors to a selection of media critiques of Craighead’s past exhibits and to a chronologically list of news items generated by the artist’s publicist, Kim Weiss of blueplate pr, including his work for charities and community arts organizations.
The new website’s “contact” page features the names, addresses and websites of the galleries that represent the artist — including Somerhill Gallery in Durham, Broadhurst Gallery in Pinehurst, Anne Irwin Fine Art in Atlanta, Georgia, and Bucks Gallery of Fine Art in Newtown, Pennsylvania – and contact information for Craighead’s publicist.
The site also features an “about the artist” page that offers more detailed background into the evolution of a painter who has become a recognized leader 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.
The new website will also allow the artist to post new works as they are finished.
