Vergie Blackmon, painter and sculptor, was born in Camden, AR, and from a very early age, knew her purpose in life was to become an artist.  She started with the red clay from under the house making all kinds of unique sculptures.  Then at the age of 10, she became interested in drawing.  At age 12, the family moved to Richmond, CA where she attended and finished high school. She attended Contra Costa College taking every art studio class available.  She also worked in the art dept teaching disabled students.  She was certified as an Activities Coordinator at Marin College in San Rafael.  Vergie has shown her artwork in the Eddie Rhodes Gallery at CCC, and at various Bay Area art shows, including Fort Mason in San Francisco.  She teaches at NIAD Art Center in Richmond, and also assists in the North Berkeley Senior Center clay studio.  She loves working with all kinds of people teaching art and seeing an improvement in their self-esteem.  She feels that art is therapy and stimulates the mind.  Her goal is to share her love of art with all whom she meets.  Vergie is a single mother of three successful adult children who encourage her every day as an artist.
