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."
Through the accumulation of audience-generated data, Plume is an immersive, interactive dome of synchronized light and sound gestures. The installation uses motion, sound and color to present an ephemeral and ethereal ecosystem.
In this sculptural installation, Lemley uses hemlock and cedar root masses with white neon. He incorporates roots from uprooted trees near his home, and neon to highlight and embellish areas of the wood and also to imagine new areas for growth.
Comprised of sculptural pieces installed on the floor and wall of the gallery, Olson employs phenomena and processes found in nature (gravity, pressure, expansion, saturation) to materials such as paper, styrofoam, wood, glass, metal.
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.
