Kim Bromley, professor of visual arts, is the featured artist of a new exhibit, titled “Moby Dick: In the Heart of the Sea.” The exhibit at the Charles H. MacNider Art Museum’s Kinney-Lindstrom Gallery in Mason City, Iowa, opened Aug. 17 and is scheduled to run through Wednesday, Oct. 10.
The exhibit features 25 oil paintings inspired by the books “Moby Dick” and “In the Heart of the Sea.” Viewers do not need to have read either of the books to feel the impact of the exhibition.
“One encounters many surprises in life, some good, others not so good. My ‘Moby-Dick’ series of paintings are works of art dealing with the many issues involving these surprises life presents,” Bromley said. “These paintings develop from my own personal life experiences, life experiences as Melville presents aboard the Pequod. These experiences are human experiences we can all relate to in some way.”
