Dr. Pat Cross

Dr. Pat cross was born in Marlinton in 1957, and moved a year later to White Sulphur Springs where he lived until graduating from Greenbrier East High School in 1975.  Over the next years, Pat earned three degrees from West Virginia University, a BSEE in 1981; MSEE in 19993 and PhD in 1998. His engineering career has taken him from West Virginia to Texas, Massachusetts, Arizona and Alabama where he currently resides.

Pat began painting at the age of 9 along side his mother, Pauline, also an accomplished artist. He resumed art as a hobby in 1980 and continued to dabble.  His work took a serious turn under the tutelage of Alabama artist Jennifer Stottle-Taylor. Bringing his experience and imagination as an engineer to his work, he continues to grow in his craft.

Carnegie Hall will house an exhibition of Pat’s work that will include select pieces of his late mother, Pauline’s dating from 1970 until the time of her death in 1996. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, September 3 from 5-7 pm with light refreshments in the Board Room Gallery at the Hall and Pat encourages everyone to attend.
