  1. Vale Gordon Bennett. Such a great loss.

  2. Raymond Evans says:

    A brilliant artist who laid down political and racial truth onto his canvasses without ever pulling a single punch or making a single compromise with historical realities.

  3. Warren Crichlow says:

    I remember Gordon Bennett as an artists whose work touched me emotionally, aesthetically and politically. His art and the spirit of his life commitment to social justice will endure, there is no doubt about that fact.
