The Pittsburgh-based artist was honored as PCA's "Artist of the Year" in 1985. Qualters' style, familiar to many Pittsburghers, features the artist's commentary - appearing as cursive text - in the borders of his work. This exhibit has been curated by art historian and independent curator Vicky A. Clark, who has also authored a new book, "Robert Qualters: Autobiographical Mythologies."

This exhibit consists of several paintings and sculptures that are, in part, a continuation of Sanders' previous exhibit Indivisibler, where textures and materials fuse together to generate an association between the human body and art.
