Broschofsky Galleries Ongoing

Broschofsky Galleries features an assortment of works, historical through contemporary, featuring a group show of artists with various subjects and interpretations of the American West. Well-known historical artist Thomas Moran was one of the most influential landscape artists of the 19th century. One of his renowned landscape images was the work titled Shoshone Falls on the Snake River, created in 1876. The Shoshone Falls is on the Snake River that runs through southern Idaho in the United States. At 212 feet tall and 900 feet wide, Shoshone Falls is one of the largest natural waterfalls in the United States, surpassing the height of the famous Niagara Falls. Other historic images include works from Edward Curtis’ project “The North American Indian” 1898-1928. The iconic Vanishing Race photo was the impetus for his vast works. No single image embodied the project better than this picture of Navajo riding off into the dusty distance.
