Try embedding the album art inside the audio files.

How about "rm -f *.jpg *.png *.gif" within the directory containing audio?

the solution is to rename the file to albumart.jpg
the music player will see the album art and the gallery will ignore it

Or you could just embed, which would avoid the hassle of keeping external album art images

Bringing back an old dead topic to live!!!

I've changes all my albumb arts to .albumart.jpg . so the gallaery did not show them back in Gingerbread.
but after upgrading to ICS all these hidden files are viewable again in the library. even .nomedia does not work.

p.s. I've used Windows mediaplayer to collect album arts and they are all small ,hidden, machine named JPGs.
