BTT Artist of the Year

Chet Reneson

BTT 2018 Artist of the Year

An avid hunter and angler since boyhood, Chet Reneson grew up on a farm in Colchester, Connecticut and studied art at the University of Hartford, graduating in 1960. His art teacher, Henrik Mayer, emphasized the importance of simplicity and taught the values of light, dark, and strong, which laid the foundation for Reneson's unmistakable style. His illustrious career began with the sale of a painting at the Crossroads of Sport, Inc. in New York in 1965. Reneson’s formal training, natural talent, and extensive outdoor experience established him as one of the premier sporting artists.
