Dennis Morton, known locally as Danny, will be having a show in the Busiel Community Room and Gallery at One Mill Plaza in Laconia for the month of August with an Artist's Reception on Wednesday August 27th from 5 pm to 8 pm.

Dennis Spent much of his youth in Keene. He began his formal training apprenticing under the renowned Richard Whitney. In 1991 he moved to Hawaii and began to aggressively pursue his talents and interests in landscape painting. Over the years his style of painting has ranged from extreme realism to impressionistic.

Dennis' training and initial work 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.
In recent years, Dennis has returned each fall to the Monadnock Region to appreciate and to capture on canvas the brilliant color.

He has focused in particular on Harrisville Village and its unique setting.
Most of the time Dennis paint outdoors, "en plein air". " You have to struggle sometimes to find the right spot, he says, "but the location often carries the whole painting.''

The Gallery is located in the Historic Busiel Mill known as One Mill Plaza. Anyone having any questions or wishing to display should contact Joe Adrignola at 496-3839 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
