Brit Bunkley’s current art practice includes public art, sculpture, installation, and the creation of “impossible” moving and still images and architecture designed using computer 3D modelling, video and image editing programs, with content emphasizing majestic landscapes, human revelry and an oblique sense of apocalyptic anxiety tempered with whimsy and irony. His most recent work Ghost Shelter (2017-2018) encompasses a variety of unconventional sites 3D scanned, printed, rendered and animated as islands of memory.

Through the use of staged photography and mixed media sculpture, Andrea Gardner's work explores an ongoing interest in the complex relationship between humans, animals and the landscape. Her art draws upon personal experience as well as the current discourse between culture and nature with its accompanying ethical and ecological concerns.

The UCCS Visiting Artists and Critics Series (VACS) fosters understanding and appreciation of contemporary art through dialogue and critical conversations. Artists and scholars of national significance are invited to the University of Colorado Colorado Springs campus to present public lectures and meet with UCCS undergraduate students in classes and workshop settings. The Visiting Artists & Critics Series is a collaborative program of the UCCS Galleries of Contemporary Art (GOCA), UCCS Visual Arts and Art History (VAPA).
