order to honor the great work we've seen in the last 3 years
by trying to fit it into our calendar, Benham Gallery will not
be reviewing new portfolios again until Jan. 2004.
Thank you for your interest.
Submit exhibition proposals between Jan 1st and
We prefer to see color copies for the initial approach. (Look
at our web sight for an example) 4 to 6 images per page, 15
to 20 images per exhibition subject. You can submit as many
different portfolio subjects you feel appropriate to our gallery.
Include resume', artist statement, prices, editions, format(s)
offered and anything else you feel appropriate.
We will not return any submissions that do not include SASE
for return. We will not be responsible for any lost or damaged
materials you wish returned.
If you have a web sight with your images on it you can send
us the URL.
If we feel your art will be appropriate to exhibit in our 2003
schedule we will contact you and arrange to view originals.
We wish we could provide a more personal review for you but
we receive over 700 submissions a year and find it overwhelming
to respond to each individual. We seriously look at every submission.
Our reputation is built on supporting emerging and midcareer
artists, so give us your best shot!
If you would like to get personal feed back from reviewers,
we suggest attending one of the many photo festivals provided
annually for photographers.
If you live in Seattle, check out FotoRevu held by the Seattle
Art Museum photo council in April.
