“Behind the Door” tries to address things that people would rather keep secret and behind closed doors, such as addiction and abuse. The door also symbolizes a portal that people might be trying to escape.

He hopes that his artwork will help start a conversation about these issues and bring awareness, according to a news release, and is interested in how artists address themes that are tragic, scary and painful, and how as an artist to grapple with the human condition.

The gallery hours are 10 a.m-7 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays; 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Fridays; and 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturdays. For private tours, email .

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.
