This year’s juror will be Hubert Jackson. Jackson received a bachelor’s degree in fine arts education from Virginia State University. He moved to the Washington, D.C., area and began a teaching career that spanned 34 years. He received a Masters of Fine Arts degree from Howard University and did further studies at the Corcoran School of Art.

His teaching experience includes both fine art and photography. Jackson continues to maintain an active painting studio and has participated in numerous exhibitions.

In addition to selecting the artwork to be included in the exhibition, Jackson will select 16 award winners for a total of $2,400 in prize money. The first-place award winner takes home $500 and the opportunity to present a one-person show at the Suffolk Museum in 2010.
