Franklin McMahon is an internationally exhibited artist-reporter from Illinois.

With a package of paper that fits under his arm and a pocketful of pencils he has been trailing presidential candidates since 1960. He has made over 2000 drawings and paintings of them for use in such publications as Look, Fortune, The Chicago Tribune, The New York Times, and has produced award-winning documentaries-in-art for PBS and CBS.

Now he exhibits selections from that collection and his thoughts about them.

"In the tradition of Winslow Homer, Frederick Remington, Daumier and Goya, he brings a new vision to reality"  John Peter
