Garry Knox Bennett courteously responded to my fan mail! I asked him what kind of music he listens to, if any, while he works (secretly hoping it was Social Distortion). Bennett said he listens to music continuously, Ipod and regular - across the board, from classic to country, lots of R & R ('70s) and everything in-between. As eclectic as his work.
His work is also on view locally at Tercera Gallery in Palo Alto and semi-locally at Winfield Gallery in Carmel - so hurry up and grab some if you've got the means! Or just go see and enjoy.
