Jessica Rose Witte is a multi-media installation artist whose ephemeral and

often methodical work attempts to fix the transitory. Non-traditional

materials, drawings, and altered found objects explore temporal themes of

degeneration, waiting, absence, and loss. Although a large number of her

sculpture and installation make reference to the figure, the viewer supplies

the physical body.

Jessica Witte's works have been featured in numerous juried and invitational

exhibitions in the Midwest, New York and California including venues such as

the San Diego Art Institute, the Rockford Art Museum (Rockford, IL) and The

Textile Center (Minneapolis, MN). She received an MFA from Northern

Illinois University, and a BFA with honors from the University of

Nebraska-Kearney. In 2005, she was awarded a winter artists residency and

later served as Interim Executive Director at the Kimmel Harding Nelson

Center for the Arts in Nebraska City. She is Director for the Nehring

Gallery and PR and Marketing Coordinator at the Northern Illinois University

Art Museum and instructs art classes at Waubonsee Community College.
