Established in 1961, the Woodside/Braseth Gallery is the oldest and one of the most respected galleries in the Pacific Northwest. We are widely acclaimed for the high quality of the objects we sell, our expertise in all areas of contemporary art, from Northwest Artists to nationally and internationally recognized artists and our distinctive exhibitions.

Woodside/Braseth Gallery has served as consultants and counselors to many in the acquisition of art. Throughout our 58-year history, we have enjoyed warm, long-standing relationships with art collectors, museums, and artists.

Discretion, loyalty and honesty are the key to our success.

Our Involvement

Since 1961, we have been instrumental in fostering an appreciation of Northwest Art by lending and donating works locally and abroad, as well as, encouraging our collectors/patrons to loan their treasures of Northwest art to local, national, and international exhibitions and major museums. Open to the public, we regularly mount exhibitions of work by major figures in northwest art, drawn from our rich and extensive holdings of art works.

Our Space

Conveniently located just below the Seattle Art Museum via the Harbor Steps, just steps from the Big Wheel on the Seattle Waterfront.  TheWoodside/Braseth Gallery  is on the ground floor of the historic 1201 Western Ave. Landmark Building, between University and Seneca.

Originally built in 1909 for cold storage to house John B. Agen's expanding butter, egg, & cheese business, J.A.S. Design-Build, Inc. has transformed the ground floor at Suite 105 into an elegant modern gallery space. The 20 foothigh ceilings and clearstory glass frontage allow for natural illumination throughout the gallery from windows along the east side.

The long vistas through the Gallery are balanced with smaller more intimate ones. The serene atmosphere provides the perfect backdrop for contemplative explorations of our monthly exhibitions.
