Today, we welcome a new WSB sponsor: Peggy Washburn Fine Art Photography. New local sponsors are offered the chance to share information about themselves and what they do, and here’s what Peggy would like you to know:
Peggy Washburn’s work has been acquired by many permanent collections including the Bibliothéque nationale de France (National French archives), The Ralph Lauren collection, The Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas, Museo Nazionale della Fotografia, and Seattle University. Along with numerous gallery shows, nationally and internationally, her work has been exhibited at The Frye Art Museum, The Whatcom Museum of History and Art, and Museo Nazionale della Fotografia. Peggy is represented by the Linda Hodges Gallery in Seattle and The Ricco Maresca Gallery in New York.
Peggy was teaching and working as a fine-art photographer, painter and mixed media artist when Marita Holdaway of Seattle’s Benham Gallery noticed her work in 1993, offered to represent her, and invited her to join the gallery’s Resident Artist program. When her second child was born in 1995, she expanded her work to include portraits, and for nearly two decades to follow has balanced between worlds. She continues to work as an artist and fine art photographer and is available for portrait sittings by appointment.
To inquire about portrait sittings, commercial or fashion work, please contact Peggy – 206-323-6705 – peggy (at) peggywashburn.com. For inquires pertaining to available artwork, please contact The Linda Hodges Gallery in Seattle.
