INSTRUCTOR After not creating work for over ten years following his undergraduate experience, Jeff Brunner was afraid of losing the creative momentum that he gained while working on a recent project. In 2012, he committed himself to create an illustration a day and 365 Critters was born. Since then he has exhibited widely in the area, participating in events like Handmade Arcade and Three Rivers Arts Festival, where he was awarded an emerging artist scholarship in 2014. Jeff also has also lead workshops and taught at Union Project, Pittsburgh Center for th Arts, and The Mattress Factory. Prior to moving full-time as an artist, he worked as a gallery registrar, museum cataloguer, and librarian at Bucknell University, the Andy Warhol Museum, and Washington & Jefferson College, respectively.
