Some artists never leave the realm of commercial illustration or photography, plying their skills and style away from the gallery. Craighead Green Gallery seeks to remedy that with Launch, a new series of exhibitions featuring commercial artists whose work has not been seen in galleries before. First Launch, the series' premier exhibit, features the work of seasoned photographer Thom Jackson. Jackson's work as an international fashion photographer might have sent him to Western Europe and the Soviet Union, but the Dallas resident's private work features images of the Meyerson Symphony Center as well as studies of light and shadow. Jackson's work has been featured in the New York Times Magazine Millennium Edition and the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book. First Launch runs through March 26. Admission is free. Call 214-855-0779 or visit craigheadgreen.com for gallery hours and info.
Mondays-Saturdays. Starts: March 3. Continues through March 26, 2011
