MEREDITH — Dennis Morton, known locally as Danny, will be exhibiting his oil paintings at VynnArt Gallery during the month of March. Though Morton is presently painting in Hawaii, his work will be represented by local Artist, Maureen Bieniarz-Pond at an Opening Reception on Friday, March 6 from 5-8 p.m.
At the Reception there will be a revised edition of the book Painting the Visual Impression by Richard Whitney which includes two of Dennis' paintings. And on April 10th, two of his paintings will appear on an episode of Hawaii Five-O. Morton spent much of his youth in Keene. He began his formal training apprenticing under the renowned Richard Whitney. Following his apprenticeship the main focus of his training and work done in New England was as a portrait artist. During this period he exhibited his work in a number of galleries.
Moving to Hawaii in 1991 he continued to receive commissions in portrait painting. After a time however, his focus shifted primarily to landscapes. His landscape paintings of Hawaii can be found in offices of the Bank of Hawaii, First Hawaiian Bank as well as courtyards of Punahou, the Castle Medical Center and in many private collections and galleries.
In recent years, Morton has returned each summer and fall to New England and the Lakes Region to appreciate and to capture on canvas the brilliant color. Some of his work can be seen at www.Dennismortonhawaii.com and on Dennis Morton Artist on Facebook.
