Algonquin artist's portraits of veterans on display at Addison library
May 23, 2014 5:30 AM -
Cpl. Patrick Tanner is among nearly two dozen veterans who greet patrons when they enter the atrium of the Addison Public Library. But instead of mingling with visitors or participating in Memorial Day celebrations, his smile is permanent and his face is constantly frozen with oils on canvas. Tanner and his fellow veterans are featured as part of the ongoing "Portraits of American Veterans" project, an exhibit hosted by the Addison Center for the Arts and created by Algonquin painter Jeanine Hill-Soldner.
