Alumni Association Distinguished Achievement in the Creative Arts Award
James (Jed) Jackson

Painter and teacher of art, Professor Jed Jackson, has an extensive national and international exhibition record (some 108 solo, group, invited or juried exhibitions), 12 fellowships, and 22 invited lectures. He earned his Master of Fine Arts at Cornell University in 1980. According to his colleague, Dr. Fred Albertson, “Jed’s record of success is the direct result of his paintings, a striking blend of traditional formalism in their composition and meticulous attention to technical quality, all within the parameters of a contemporary neo-realist style…..” Jeffrey Nessin, President of the Memphis College of Art, writes that Jackson’s “exhibition record testifies to his reception and his ambition, but most of all to his unique, sharp and unsparing vision.”

From 1999 until 2008, Professor Jackson served as chair of the Art Department. Jed Jackson has made and continues to make a distinguished contribution to the creative arts.
