Visit in person at the Stokes County Arts Council, 500 N. Main Street, Danbury, North Carolina. This display of artwork will be on display throughout February. The viewing of this exhibit is free and open to the public. Rucker's life as a portrait artist and muralist began at an early age. Art later became a true passion for Rucker in middle school when Rucker worked to develop and improve his skills in portraits and landscapes with pencil and watercolor. In high school he received many awards in art, and in college continued his pursuit in commercial art at Rutledge College with a degree in 1983 and an outstanding artist award from that school. These accomplishments opened the door for Rucker to become a supervisor in the gold leaf department at Carolina Art and Frame in Kernersville, NC, and he pursued a career in art throughout his life. As he has continued his journey in the art world, he developed skills in different media. His exhibit is brilliant in color, musical in nature, and a must see for everyone!
