Chase Gallery is moving

Chase Gallery is moving from Newbury Street in Boston to the city’s South End gallery district along Harrison Avenue.

The gallery, which opened in 1990, plans to close at 129 Newbury St. on July 30 and reopen at 450 Harrison Ave., number 57, on Aug. 5. Owner Jeffrey Chase and Director Jane Young write:
“Traditionally the center for art galleries in Boston, Newbury Street's changing atmosphere has caused many galleries to seek new and alternative space. The South End's gentrified former warehouse district, between Washington Street and the Expressway, has quickly become a vibrant mecca for art and design.

“At our new street level space at 450 Harrison Avenue, we are delighted to join high quality, high-end galleries and design companies, along with the studios of more than 50 working artists. … More space will allow us to better showcase the many artists that we have represented for nearly twenty years and who have made the gallery a destination in the Boston art community.”
