Ripple River Gallery
27591 Partridge Ave.

For John Pearson, making art is a process of continuous discovery. From selecting and photographing a subject to exploring the possibilities of polymer photoengraving, engraving allows him to develop the potential of the medium.

His work will be on view at the Ripple River Gallery until Sunday, September 11.

Since 2015, Pearson has been working in the field of polymer photoengraving, an engraving process in which digital photos are transferred onto photosensitive plates. The plates are then inked, wiped and printed on a manual intaglio press.

“I am drawn to this medium because it brings the warmth, colors and textures of intaglio engraving to the immediacy and truthfulness of digital photography. I’m still discovering the full range of expression the medium offers,” Pearson said in a press release.

A graduate of the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and a member of the Highpoint Printmaking Collective, Pearson has combined his interest in the natural environment with his artistic practice. He pursued an internship at the Environmental Learning Center in Isabella (now Wolf Ridge Environmental Center).

The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday to Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, call 218-678-2575, email [email protected] or visit www.ripplerivergallery.com.

BRAINERD
Brainerd Public Library
416 S. Fifth St.

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

Delafield has been 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 guide at the Morse Museum of American Art in Winter Park, Florida.

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

Delafield graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in fashion design. Her experience includes working in the design of wedding dresses, children’s clothing and women’s clothing under her own brand. Delafield sells her womenswear collection exclusively at Jarboe.

His works of art include nature studies in pastel, rendered with the soft richness of pastel chalk. Delafield’s fine works of art have been exhibited and sold in galleries and hung 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 of the historic Brainerd Lakes region.

New Online Exhibit: “We Are Happy: An Exploration of Joy in Early Photography,” reports the Morrison County Historical Society, which scoured the “archives to find examples of people beating the stereotype that early photography was all about serious and sinister. These photographs show people laughing, friends playing and beloved pets, all captured in perpetuity. All this to remind that no matter the period, people are people. The exhibit is available online through www.morrisoncountyhistory.org using the Online Exhibits drop-down menu.

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 December 31.
