The Florida Museum of Photographic Arts Monday (Dec. 11) opened its annual Photography Benefit Sale, an exhibition of more than 140 pieces of fine art photography by 54 artists.
The annual event, located in the museum’s Community Gallery, offers FMoPA members the opportunity to display and sell their work within a museum setting, and the public the opportunity to purchase work produced by local photographers. Artists set their prices and retain all of the proceeds.
“Every year we look forward to the Photography Benefit Sale because we are able to host many different photographers in one space and build the community we have at FMoPA,” said FMoPA Executive Director Zora Carrier, Ph.D.
“It’s an excellent opportunity to purchase unique holiday gifts and support local artists at the same time,” said Ms. Carrier.
The exhibition will run through January 26, 2018, and is included in the regular museum admission price: $10 for adults and $8 for students, seniors and military. The downtown Tampa museum, located at 400 North Ashely St., Cube 200, is open Monday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
FMoPA is dedicated to exhibiting important photographic art as central to contemporary life and culture. The museum collects, preserves and exhibits historic and contemporary works by nationally and internationally known photographic artists.
