First Friday: UT Downtown Gallery


The UT Downtown Gallery is pleased to present Revealed, an exhibition of paintings by Pat Badt and ceramic sculptures by Paul Briggs. The paintings and sculptures share a similar modesty in size, creating an approachable and intimate relationship between object and viewer. The work is meditative in process. Lines and leaf-forms vary in length, color, orientation, and proximity to the next. It is repetitive, yet unique.

Paul Briggs will be present at this First Friday reception. Come out and meet the artist!

Pat Badt earned her BA from the University of California at Santa Cruz and her MFA from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. She is currently a Professor of Art at Cedar Crest College in Allentown, PA. Badt has received many accolades for her work, including a NEA for painting. She has an extensive exhibition record -- showing in New York, Los Angeles, Iceland, and Brussels and has participated in residencies in Japan, Italy, France, and Iceland. In addition to herpaintings, Badt makes books and box works as well.

Paul Briggs has a BAEd in education and ceramics from City College in New York, an, MSEd in ceramics from Alfred University in New York and a Ph.D in Art Education from Penn State. Briggs was on the art education faculty at Mass College of Art and Harvard University, and served on the College Board as an AP Studio Portfolio reader. The son of a minister, Briggs has also pursued his spiritual calling, earning a MA in in Biblical and Rabbinical Literature from Oral Roberts University. Briggs is the pastor of Antioch Baptist Church in Bedford Hills, New York where he conducts a ministry that is both relevant and contemporary.
