May 13, 2011 - PRLog -- Born in Troy, New York, Gail Nogle was eight years old when she was given her first camera, even back then she knew photography was her life's pursuit. A graduate of the prestigious Rochester Institute of Technology, Gail spent more than 14 years with Gittings Portrait Studio in Dallas, Texas before opening her own studio.  Creative whimsy and boundless enthusiasm are as much a part of Gail Nogle's  stock-in-trade as her reputation of capturing the art of life.  Highly regarded by both critics and collectors, Gail has the exceptional talent of capturing the extraordinary in ordinary people and places. This talent provides her a much-deserved reputation for both artistic vision, as well as a mastery of the technical aspects of her craft.

Her involvement with Crystal Charity Ball led her to become aware of the restoration of the Old Red Courthouse.  She was asked to visually capture 25 photographs to represent the contribution the Crystal Charity Ball had made to the restoration effort of Old Red.  She did this and more, not only were those photographs staged and shot but the actual restoration work was shot as well.  This effort made for an enormous body of work that covered the restoration and the presentation of extraordinarily beautiful fine art photographs.  Gail states, 'It was a photographers dream, a once in a lifetime opportunity to photograph the beauty of such a magnificent building."

The Old Red Museum is located in the West End of downtown Dallas at 100 South Houston Street in the beautifully restored Old Red Courthouse built in 1892.  The Old Red Museum of Dallas serves as home to the cultural, economic, political and social history of the Dallas County area.  Old Red features exhibits filled with historical artifacts, 41-state of the art touch screen computers, four mini theaters and is one of the few history museums in the nation with a hands-on education center, The Crystal Charity Ball Children’s Education Center designed specifically for younger visitors.  The special exhibit gallery is located on the first floor.  Admission to “Rescuing Old Red” is included with general admission.  General admission is $8 for adults, $6 for seniors, and $5 for children ages three to sixteen.  Admission to “Rescuing Old Red” without general admission is $3 for adults and $1 for children.  Admission is free for museum members.  The Museum is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily.  Early Bird admission pricing of $5 is offered on Sundays from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.  For group reservations, corporate meetings, or outings please contact groupsales@oldred.org.  For more information, visit www.oldred.org.
