Chair of Visual Arts
Stephanie Hunder teaches printmaking and digital media at Concordia University, St. Paul, where she is Department Chair, Gallery Director and Professor of Art. She received her BFA (1993) and MA (1997) from the University of Wisconsin–Madison, and her MFA (2000) from Arizona State University. Her current work addresses relationships through natural iconography, and combines photographic and digital techniques with traditional printmaking processes.
In 2012, Hunder participated in an exhibition at MCAD with a CSP student and a CSP alumna in which they collaborated on a work. (The exhibition was of local art department chairs collaborating with current or past students). It was a very successful piece, and was featured in several of the articles about the exhibition. Hunder has also been working to make the gallery an active part of Concordia's campus. She is one of the founders of the College Art Gallery Collaborative (CAGC), originally five and now over 10 local college galleries that sponsor group activities like our Fall Art Tour (supported by ACTC). The tour has free bus rides around to the various campuses so students can see a number of exhibitions.

Printmaking, digital art, researching photographic methods of printmaking
"Working with students one-one-one and collaboratively in the studio – discussing current art practice and how they investigate their ideas through creating work. I also enjoy taking students on field trips around town and to out-of-town conferences to see and participate in the contemporary art world outside of the classroom."
