I imagine if you filter in the gallery to just captures it would help
I personally use a MediaManager (MediaMonkey, Windows user) that tags the album art to the mp3 (or transcodes it if it isn't an mp3 :)) and I don't copy over the separate album art image file.
I tend to not store the album art in separate files now on my computer. Anything decent now-a-days should be able to read embedded album art.
PS Yes I've done this on my N9, and yes, it works perfectly fine.

I've used MAX on the Mac to encode my CDs to FLAC - and embed album art, so the images don'e show up in the gallery.
Not much use after 30GB have been transferred, I know. :(

You can filter the Gallery images by tags.

Strangely, I don't have external JPG album art, but I still get 3 different sizes of album art afted transferring music to the phone.
The other option is to delete the album art after you transfer music to the phone. Embedded art remains but doesn't show up in gallery.
I noticed I had hidden folders in my music folders. Enable "view hidden files and folders" on Windows/Linux and delete them.
You might have to delete them on your computer's harddisk and transfer the stuff over again. With the N900 I got into a weird reappearing loop where stuff deleted just came back soon after deletion.
