After 11 years in its Denny Triangle location, Woodside/Braseth Gallery will move to a new site in late September. Denny Triangle, of course, is a white-hot real estate market, and Woodside/Braseth is surrounded by high-rises on the rise. (The gallery’s home, a building owned by Cornish College of the Arts, recently sold for $16 million.) Gallery owner John Braseth wisecracks that he pointedly avoided looking at any low-rise structures for his new location, since they’re most vulnerable to demolition and redevelopment.

His new home, 1201 Western Ave., at the base of Harbor Steps, is a 12-story building. Near Pike Place Market and the waterfront, it has more of an old Seattle flavor, Braseth feels, than the “office park” look and atmosphere of Denny Triangle and South Lake Union these days.

“The Visionaries of the Pacific Northwest Revisited,” currently on show at Woodside/Braseth, runs through Aug. 20 and will be the last exhibit at 2101 Ninth Avenue address. Braseth hopes the Western Avenue location, which will reopen with a group show featuring all the artists represented by Woodside/Braseth, will be the gallery’s last home. He’s been in the business 37 years and hopes to wrap things up when he hits the half-century mark.
