NEW YORK MILLS
New York Mills Regional Cultural Center
24 N. Main Ave.
Michael Weatherly is a Minnesota-based contemporary printmaker living in Elbow Lake. His show entitled “Behind the Door” will be featured in the New York Mills Regional Cultural Center gallery until Oct. 15.
A free artist reception will take place from 4-6 p.m. Oct. 14 and will include an artist talk, and light refreshments will be served.
Weatherly works with several printmaking methods including linocut, wood cut, multimedia prints and poly plate lithography. He describes his work as contemporary but also says he designs and prints what he likes, which sometimes leads to diverse subjects.
“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 email@example.com .
