Brainerd Public Library

416 S. Fifth St.

An exhibit of artwork by Lucy Nesheim is on display at the Brainerd Public Library, 416 S. Fifth St., through June.

The exhibit includes 14 pieces of artwork in oil on canvas. The predominant theme of the pieces is nature, with a focus on water. A couple of the pieces on display have an abstract quality to them, while the rest of the exhibit’s paintings are realistic renderings of nature scenes.


Nesheim has used a vivid palette that helps the lifelike scenes stand out, according to a news release.

Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum

2151 Lindbergh Drive S.

“Good People: A Photographic Exploration of Morrison County” will be on display at the Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum in Little Falls until Dec. 31.

Anthony Marchetti began photographing in Morrison County in 2018. Located in Minnesota’s geographic center, the county presents a stark contrast to the Minnesota he has known.

In 2016 and 2020, Donald Trump’s margin of victory in the area ranked the highest in the state, according to a news release, and he learned more about local residents on both sides of the political divide, and their lifestyles and values, passions and fears.

For more information about the event and Marchetti, call 320-632-4007, email or visit .

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I'm the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later. I've gone through a lot of changes over the years, but what has never changed is my commitment to community and to local journalism. I've got an entire team of dedicated people who work night and day to make sure I go out every morning, whether in print, as an e-edition, via an app or with additional information at News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.
