A new exhibit of artwork by Nichole Delafield is on display at the Brainerd Public Library through September. The exhibit includes 14 pieces of watercolor prints and one acrylic mixed-media artwork.

Delafield was an art teacher for 25 years, and she shares her love for art through private lessons, summer camps and elementary school programs. She is a docent at The Morse Museum of American Art in Winter Park, Florida.

Her work includes fine art with pastels, watercolor and acrylic. She also enjoys sharing her love of art and design through her signature hand-painted silks. Design work for women includes clothing and accessories featuring these distinctive pieces.

Delafield is a graduate of the University of Maryland with a degree in fashion design. Experience includes work in bridal design, children’s wear and clothing for women under her own label. Delafield sells her women’s wear collection exclusively at Jarboe.

Her fine artwork includes nature studies in pastel, rendered with the soft richness of pastel chalk. Delafield’s fine artwork has been exhibited and sold in galleries and hangs in private collections.

Writing is another form of expression for Delafield. “Gull Lake Memories: A Kayaking Adventure” is a travel journal and memoir sharing stories and paintings from the historic Brainerd lakes area.

New online exhibit: “ We Are Happy: An Exploration of Joy in Early Photography ,” Morrison County Historical Society reports it went through the “archives to find examples of people beating the stereotype that early photography was a wholly serious, grim affair. These photographs show people laughing, friends playing, and beloved pets, all captured for perpetuity. All as a reminder that no matter the time period, people are people.” The exhibit is available online via using the Online Exhibits dropdown.


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

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.
