Photographer and portrait artist Colin Kimball will present a show of “Presidents and Patriots” at Orisons Art and Framing Gallery during the month of February. These portraits pay homage to presidents who served as members of armed forces prior to becoming Commander-in-Chief.

Kimball’s portraits are much more than a visual likeness of a military hero. Based on sometimes scant information, Kimball researches every detail of the soldier’s time in the military.  From his findings, Kimball creates a visual narrative of their time in the service. Often this brings to light details previously unknown to the family of the subject.

Join Orisons in celebrating Kimball’s years of service to this cause, and hear more of Kimball’s work as he recreates the stories of men and women who have served their country.

An Opening Reception will be held on Saturday, Feb. 8 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Wine, beverages and sweets will be provided courtesy of McKinney's Sweet Spot. Orisons is located at 110 E. Louisiana St. in Historic Downtown McKinney. Call 972-529-1441 for more information.
