Sarah Benham was born in New Orleans and grew up in rural Mississippi. She began painting in college but became sidetracked by photography in the 70's. She studied with John Loengard, Arnold Newman, George Tice, Deborah Turbeville, Eugene Richards and others. Her photography is included in several museum collections including the Fogg Museum at Harvard University and the Biblioteque Nationale in Paris as well as many private collections. Bringing her passion for photography, she returned to painting full time. Her teachers include George Dureau, David Loffler Smith and John Borowicz. Her work has been exhibited at the Dedee Shattuck Gallery in Westport, MA (group exhibitions 2011 & 2012), a solo exhibition at the Colo Colo Gallery in New Bedford, Ma (2012) and Gallery 4 in Tiverton, RI (2012). Her paintings are in numerous private collections.
“My work has an implied narrative and like a fleeting memory, there is a lack of specificity and detail. My palette is subtle and compressed.”
