I could really connect with the paintings as i walked through the exhibit. Homer did a really nice job painting these pieces. He really showed the true power of mother nature and the ocean. Homer is a genius.

We enjoyed it very much. The paintings remind me of many seascapes from coastal Washington County, Rhode Island where I grew up. The colors capture the subdued mood of the stormy ocean: a mix of apathy and danger.

I have always appreciated the sublime, awe-inspiring power of Homer's works, and I'm not just talking about "Life Line". Themes of human persistence and bravery in the face of adversity or destruction fill this exhibit. Kudos, Namaste.

AS A SAILOR ON THE CHESAPEAKE, YOU DON'T REALIZE THE REAL POWER OF THE SEA. CAUGHT ONCE IN A THUNDER STORM, IT WAS NO PROBLEM TO FIND A COVE AND WAIT IT OUT. A FRIEND,CALLED "THE END OF THE WORLD"

HOW MUCH THE SEA HASN'T CHANGED! THOSE WHO EXPERIENCED SANDY WHILE ON THE OCEAN, IT MUST HAVE BEEN JUST AS TERRIFYING AS THOSE WHOM HOMER DEPICTS.

The exhibit is particularly moving in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. I didn't expect to have such a powerful emotional experience. Thank you for such a thoughtful, well-curated exhibit!

Such a timely exhibition in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy after watching news images of our modern lifesaving heroes helping victims in rising flood waters. Homer is a genius.

This art museum has very good exhibits. It featured many beautiful pieces of art that I couldn't take my eyes off of for one second. I love the color scheme of the walls too. It really brings out the complementary colors in the paintings to make the painting stand out. The different paintings gave me different emotions from despair to sadness. Not many were happy, if any. Every single painting was beautiful in every single way. I felt as if I was almost inside the painting, if that makes any sense. Great exhibit! Amazing work! Loved it!
