moving to Dragon Street it has created a closer-knit community. Like New York City, most of the major galleries in Dallas are all located very close to each other. It makes it easy for the art buyer, the designer community and those interested in art to see a lot of different artists with a very short time investment,” he says.


Craighead Green Gallery Craighead Green Gallery is also noticing that the turbulent and divided times are affect- ing artists and collectors. The desire for pleasant, calming and beautiful art is a reflection of the world today.


The gallery is celebrating its 25th year of business and will introduce four to five new artists who will bring new ideas and techniques that are unique and profound.


During its 25 years in busi- ness, Craighead Green Gallery has been a part of DADA (Dallas Art Dealer Association) and also CADD (Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas). “We have been on founding boards of several art entities and organiza- tions,” says co-owner Kenneth Craighead. “We have watched


all of these organizations grow and mature. Dallas now has a reputation for being a hub for the arts and a center for museums and galleries. The day has arrived that visitors come in and proudly announce they are visiting Dallas specifically to see the arts!”


Fellow co-owner Steve


Green adds: “The organization of the Design District, the Dallas Arts District and other venues give Dallas an edge unlike many other cities. This solidarity is allowing the arts to be shared with many people who nev- er before visited galleries or museums. It is an introduction to a different world that is much needed.”


William Campbell Contemporary Art Like many others, William Campbell Contemporary Art, which has been in business for over 40 years, is experiencing an interest in larger work in the contemporary and minimalistic vein. The gallery, which is com- mitted to serious art presenta- tions and professionalism, is also enjoying the dramatic change over the past 10 years with the


number of new galleries that are opening.


“The Dallas/Fort Worth


metroplex has an abundance of colleges and universities with high-profile art departments and educators,” says owner Bill Campbell. “This, coupled with the influence of so many museums, nonprofit spaces, and the abundance of art galleries and art-related events, creates a fertile, art conscious environ- ment for the area to be a leader in national and international ‘art’ destinations.”


When asked about his work with interior designers, Campbell says: “Designers and consul- tants are playing a much larger role in selecting artwork for their clients. It is the responsibility of the galleries to educate the designers and the designers in turn to educate themselves and their clients, with the goal of the client taking personal and intellectual ownership of the work. In other words, it speaks to the client’s personal taste and the need for them to be able to speak for and defend their choice of artwork for other than simply decorative reasons.”


Art on the Boulevard Art on the Boulevard is seeing a trend in more hand-painted art infused with digitally produced images and artist-created collages. “There is much more contemporary work available for purchase and more venues for the artists to display their works, such as pop-up locations,” says owner Jennifer Stufflebeam. She is also noticing that the number of artists injecting elements reminiscent of abstract expressionism from the post- WWII era is increasing, along with a revival of interest and appreciation for the art created in the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. When asked about the art scene in Dallas, Stufflebeam says: “We live in an area that is home to a large population of working visual artists. We need to support more artists’ cooperatives and art collectives popping up in the DFW area. Some of these artists are never recognized and supported for their work. Forming a collective is the only way many of them get exposure to the public.” Art on the Boulevard works with interior designers and wel- comes them to take work being
