Benham Gallery Goes Virtual


After 22 years as a prominent Seattle photo gallery, Benham Gallery closed its doors in December 2009 and will launch a virtual iteration called Benham Fine Art.

Owner Marita Holdaway, a former PhotoMedia Photography Person of the Year, said the new site (benhamfineart.com) will allow clients to browse through artists' pages and review or purchase prints. Interested users will still be able to set up personal consulting appointments.

Benham has held more than 500 exhibits and propelled the careers of local photographers, such as Phil Borges, Peggy Washburn and Bruce Barnbaum.
