The West Broadway Gallery’s mission is to exhibit Realism and Abstraction of the Idealized sort. Idealism offers imagery achieved through intuitively adjusted line and surface and is created entirely by the mind and hand - foregoing the camera and computer as somehow needlessly distant from the human soul. Idealists generally believe that Vermeer and Degas and Ingres and Holbein and Phidias are timeless and therefore valid today.
