Herb Jackson (born August 18, 1945) is an artist and is the William H. Williamson Professor of Art at Davidson College. Jackson's art is almost entirely abstract and non-representational. He is most known for his paintings, both larger works on canvas and smaller on board, and also for his oil crayondrawings on paper. He has also done a number of prints using vitreography and digital media.
In 1999 he was awarded the North Carolina Award, the highest civilian honor in the state, by Governor Jim Hunt of North Carolina. In 2015 Jackson was awarded the North Caroliniana Society Award for extraordinary contributions to North Carolina's cultural heritage. Herb Jackson was born in Raleigh, North Carolina on August 18, 1945. Throughout his childhood he was a regular at the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh and won his first award for art in a juried exhibition there in 1962, as a teenager.He received his undergraduate degree in German from Davidson College in 1967 (art was not offered as a major yet) and studied abroad at Philipps University in Marburg, Germany for a year. Three years later he earned his master's degree in fine arts from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1970. In 1969, while finishing up his graduate studies, Jackson began teaching at Davidson. In 1982 he became the Chair of the Art department, a position which he held until he retired in 2011. Jackson has had more than 100 single-artist exhibitions in several countries, including England, Portugal, and Peru.
