Artist of the Month

Emerge Gallery & Art Center will be featuring the work of a selected sales gallery artist each month. The Artist of the Month is a way for us to celebrate and highlight the talent from the local artists who sale work with us, by shining a spotlight on a different creative artist each month.

Rakia Jackson

Rakia is a painter and illustrator working heavily with gouache and acrylic inks, who received her BFA in Graphic Design from ECU. Her paintings are representations and reflections from her life experiences, dreams and her focus to live mindfully through the universe and keep peace within herself as well as the elements around her daily. Crystal healing, mindful meditation,and understanding the universe while dropping the ego more each day is what infuses her work.
