(PR NewsChannel) / December 12, 2017 / TAMPA, Fla. 
Give the gift of fine-art photography this holiday season! The Florida Museum of Photographic Arts will open its annual Photography Benefit Sale Monday in the Community Gallery.

The Benefit Sale gives FMoPA members the chance to display and sell their work within a museum setting, and it gives museum visitors a rare opportunity to view—with the option of purchasing—work produced by local photographers.

“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.

Fifty-four artists and more than 140 pieces will be included in the exhibition. All of the photographs are for sale. Artists set their own prices and will retain 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of their work.

“It’s an excellent opportunity to purchase unique holiday gifts and support local artists at the same time,” said Carrier.

The exhibition will be on display through January 26, 2018.
