Berks artist displays original Abe Lincoln artwork

KEMPTON, Pa. -

This President's Day weekend, one of America's most popular presidents was on display in Berks County.

Artist Jonathan Bond presented a special exhibit of his original works called "A. Lincoln American Dreamer."

The works feature Abraham Lincoln in several settings, including one near Hawk Mountain!

Bond says Lincoln is an inspiring man to paint.

"He's a man for all seasons as they say and I've been inspired to paint him because of those striking features that he has as a human being but also because of the impact that he had on history," said Bond.

The exhibit in Kempton featured more than 30 original works.
