Elton Bennett

Elton Bennett’s silkscreens center around nature hikes with family and friends in the Pacific Northwest and coastal scenes from his childhood featuring tall ships, steamships, and old lumber mills. Bennett created over 100 serigraph designs from one screen, and made his art accessible and inexpensive, never selling his prints for more than fifteen dollars. Bennett said of his work, “I want [it] to become you. I want the person looking at my artwork to feel so much a part of it that the figure becomes them in that scene.”
