Jerry Austin completes his eleventh year as chair of the UNT Department of Studio Art this spring where he heads an accomplished faculty. Under Austin's direction, studio art programs have grown and expanded into several buildings across the UNT campus and new programs in Watercolor and Electronic Media have been added to the traditional stable of studio offerings. Austin himself is a ceramic artist and has directed the Clay Program at UNT for the past twenty seven years. Both a functional potter and a ceramic sculptor, Austin's current work deals with time tracking and the illusion of monumental scale in basin or bowl forms.

When UNT art professor Jerry Austin viewed Bramblitt's exhibit, he never guessed the creator was blind. Austin, chairman of the school's division of studio art, admires the tactile dimension of works like "Rodeo" and complimented the artist's innate grasp of hues, perspective and depth. "All of those dimensions that a visual artist, a sighted person, struggles with - I can only imagine the difficulty that an unsighted person has," Austin said.

Austin said Bramblitt's bold, raw use of color shows promise, even if the untrained artist is in the early stages of development compared to other students. Some paintings are too simplified and subdued, he added, but with time and teaching his work might evolve.
