Jackson was a watercolorist, Detroit, Mich. The Artist Group of the Emergency Work Bureau, also known as the Unemployed Artists Group, was organized in September 1933 when New York state's Emergency Work Bureau phased out its art project. The impetus for its formation was the desire of ex-project workers for further state assistance for artists. Gained a reputation for radicalism. Philip Bard was the leader of the group.
