American Art Awards president Thom Bierdz announced today that Craighead Green Gallery is one of the 25 Best Galleries In America for 2014. Bierdz explains, “We select a variety of galleries, one per state, and we’re impressed at what Craighead Green has brought to Dallas these last 22 years. They’ve become one of the finest contemporary art galleries in the Southwest, consistently representing about 40 artists of various mediums. Contemporary paintings, archival pigment prints, sculpture in a myriad of media – very current work – very approachable atmosphere.
“Gallery director, Kenneth Craighead, and partner, Steve Green, opened the gallery in 1992 in the Dallas Arts District. Since then, they purchased a building and relocated the Gallery to the Design District. Scot Presley joined the Gallery as Assistant Director in 2002 and Daniel Angeles joined the gallery staff in 2013.
“Craighead Green represents mid to late career artists while continuing their promotion of emerging artists whose work is unique and interrogative. We at AAA find that they are this year’s best gallery in Texas.”
