January 26* – March 20, 2024
Kim Bromley, Monet’s Garden is now open to the public in the Charles H. MacNider Art Museum’s Kinney-Lindstrom Gallery. The exhibition will be on display through Wednesday, March 20, 2024, and is sponsored by the David & Phyllis Murphy Charitable Foundation and Hanson Family Foundation.
For the past fifteen years artist Kim Bromley has been painting his pond. Bromley is a visual arts professor at North Dakota State University in Fargo and lives just across the border in Minnesota. He lives on twenty acres with an eight-acre pond in the middle of the property. Each summer Bromley sets up a studio by the pond and spends his summers plein air painting.
In 2019, North Dakota State University sponsored an opportunity for Bromley to travel to France. He was able to study Impressionist artist Claude Monet’s paintings and to visit his gardens in Giverny.
Bromley expresses “This was an inspirational experience! After letting this adventure simmer for two years, the scenes I encountered there are now coming to life in my paintings. The motifs that inspired hundreds of Monet’s most mature work are seen in my paintings. My unique paintings are also filled with color and light as seen in the dynamic compositions. These paintings are my interpretation of the gardens Monet so lovingly created.”
The Charles H. MacNider Art Museum is free to visit and open to the public. Experience Kim Bromley’s colorful landscapes in person on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. – 8 p.m. and on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. The Museum is closed on Sundays and Mondays.
