Grover/Thurston Gallery to close

After more than two decades in business, Seattle gallery Grover/Thurston will close on May 17, co-owner Susan Grover announced in an email. The announcement gives no details other than the closure date. “Our sincere hope is the artwork which has passed through the gallery on its journey will continue to inspire curiosity and appreciation in the years to come,” Grover wrote. Grover/Thurston represented such well-recognized artists as Fay Jones, Akio Takamori, Judy Hill, James Lavadour and Francesca Sundsten.

The gallery, established in 1991, moved in 2011 from Occidental Avenue to its smaller, current location at 319 Third Ave. S., the former home of the now-closed Catherine Person Gallery. Co-owner Richard Thurston told The Seattle Times then, “The Seattle art market has changed; how we operate is evolving and we require less space.”
