Albany- A new exhibit at the Albany Art Museum is showing off some familiar faces. The exhibit called Faces features portraits by artists Comer Jennings, Steve Penley, and Gregory Hubbard.

Comer Jennings has painted over 750 portraits, some in homes here in Albany, some in more prestigious places like the White House. Jennings has painted portraits of President Jimmy Carter and his own grandchildren, but enjoys both.

"The best thing about painting a portrait is you get to know the person better than anybody knows them at the time, because there you are face to face with somebody, day after day, for two hours and a half and you talk about everything," said Comer Jennings, Artist.

Jennings says if he really works, he can paint a portrait in a week, but most take longer. Faces opened Saturday and will remain at the Albany Art Museum through March.
