A free public artist’s reception will be held from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., Oct. 12, featuring a talk by Finch on her life and work.

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 rip saw 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.
