Betsy Fetherston will close her namesake gallery in early March, she has just announced. “Seattle has a rich and vital visual arts community, and I will continue to support it and encourage others as well,” she said in an email.

The gallery was founded in 1997 as Ballard/Fetherston Gallery. It moved into the Seattle Design Center in Georgetown from its original home in the Pike-Pine corridor just under a year ago. (Cofounder Carmen Ballard moved to Portland in 2007.)

The gallery was one of many businesses in the late 2000s forced to look for a new home as rents went up and restaurants and other businesses were eager to move in. It’s also on the growing roster of Seattle galleries that have closed in the past few years: Benham Gallery, Howard House, Crawl Space, Lawrimore Project, Western Bridge, Francine Seders, Catherine Person, Grover/Thurston (closing May 17), Ambach & Rice (relocated to L.A.).
