About the artist: 

Jessalyn Finch has been a visual artist off and on starting in 2009. She received a B.S. in Fine Art and Eastern Philosophy from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse focused on Printmaking and Figure Drawing. After graduation in 2012, she decided not to pursue art professionally until 2018, when she was awarded a SEMAC Emerging Artist grant for her collection Shadow Form: The Human Body’s Secret Life.

She is currently an Artist Member at Threshold arts where she sells prints, woodcuts, and postcards. She continues her multi-disciplinary approach to explore crossing mediums, performance, surrealism, fashion, and the human condition, at her home studio in Rochester, MN.

This program is created as part of the exhibition Walk With Us

Curated by John Schuerman and Zoe Cinel, Walk With Us is an international, walking-based art exhibition in which fifteen artists share their discoveries and artistic extrapolations from the social, physical, and psychic landscapes they explored while walking. This exhibition is presented in the non-gallery spaces (hallways, elevators, alcoves, etc.) of the Art Center to reflect both the wandering, wayfinding, and exploratory nature of walking-based art, and the shifting terrain covered by the artists.

Artists: Abbey Paccia, Alonso Sierralta, Anastasia Polychronidou, Ben Moren, Ellen Mueller, Jess Witte, Martin Presley, Meagan Marsh Pine, Mode Lab (collective), Nicholas Bauch, Olle Helin, Sage Dawson, Sarah Nassif, Yiannis Pappas, Yumi Roth
