March 3, 2010 (Pinehurst, NC)– Broadhurst Gallery in Pinehurst, NC, will open a solo exhibit of recent works by Raleigh artist Jason Craighead on Sunday, March 14, from 2-4 p.m. A gallery talk with the artist will begin at 4 p.m.

Jason Craighead is best known for his predominantly large-scale paintings that combine acrylic, oil pastel, and graphite in multiple layers of color, lines, and drips. For the Broadhurst show, he will hang 12 to 16 works that range from works on canvas and paper to works on book and encyclopedia covers, representing an evolution from the work he presented in his most recent show at Somerhill Gallery in Durham, NC.

“I always have the feeling of being right on the edge of something,” he said recently.“My work is always about growth and furthering exploration.”

The artist’s ongoing evolution is one of the reasons gallery owner Judy Broadhurst is excited about this show.

“I love to support an artist who realizes that change is important and necessary,” she said.“I love Jason’s new work. It’s more open, there’s more color. It is new for him and I support that. Jason is also great to work with, and I’m delighted that he will be at the opening and give a gallery talk. That’s another reason I’m excited about his show.”

Broadhurst also timed Craighead’s show to coincide with the busy tourist season in Pinehurst.“This is the time of year when anyone who plays golf wants to come to Pinehurst,” she said.“Since Jason is a contemporary artist, this is a good time of the year to have his show.”

Broadhurst Gallery is located at 2212 Midland Road, Pinehurst. Regular gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday 11am-5pm Saturday 1pm-4pm and evenings by appointment. For more information visit www.broadhurst gallery.com .
