Herb Jackson was born in Raleigh, North Carolina in 1945. After receiving his B.A. from Davidson College in 1967, he continued his education at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he received his Master of Fine Arts in 1970. Currently, Jackson is a professor of painting at Davidson College and is the former Chair of the Art Department.
Jackson grew up in Raleigh and was fascinated by the North Carolina Museum of Art’s collection. He spent a lot of time studying the artists and was influenced by the painters William Baziotes, Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock.
For over thirty years, Jackson has exhibited nationally and internationally, and his artwork can be found in over 80 museum collections, including: Asheville Museum of Art; Brooklyn Museum, New York; Cleveland Museum of Art, Ohio; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Library of Congress; Philadelphia Museum of Art; Smithsonian Institution and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
In 1999, the North Carolina governor awarded Jackson with the North Carolina Award, which is the state’s highest civilian honor for Lifetime Achievement in Fine Arts.
