Belfast — Works of Belfast artist Jerri Finch will be featured in the University of Maine Hutchinson Center’s H. Allen and Sally Fernald Art Gallery Friday, Oct. 12, through Dec. 3. A free public artist’s reception, featuring a talk by Finch on her life and work, will be held Oct. 12 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at UMH, 80 Belmont Ave./Route 3.

Growing up as one of eight children in a working class family, Finch pursued three years of art studies at three colleges. Between each year of college, she worked for a year to fund her educational expenses. Finch held a variety of jobs including telephone operator, lineman for NJ Bell, driver for L’eggs pantyhose and ripsaw operator at an Oregon saw mill before returning to her calling as a professional artist.

In 1981, Finch settled in Belfast and started Finch Gallery. The Hutchinson Center exhibit is the culmination of many years of focus, discipline and observation.
