François Escalmel has achieved success in Montreal, Germany and Italy with his surrealistic paintings.  Not content to merely return to a proven formula, the artist has also produced abstract images, and photographic works where he shrinks himself to fit into miniature worlds of his own creation.  Paul Larson shines the Spotlight on this prolific innovator.

“Spotlight” is made possible, in part, by the Glenn and Carol Pearsall Adirondack Foundation, dedicated to improving the quality of life for year-round residents of the Adirondack Park. www.pearsallfoundation.org. “Spotlight” is also supported by the chamber music organization Hill and Hollow Music.
Escalmel is also a filmmaker, having produced a documentary about American figurative artist Jerome Witkin.  Learn more about this program here.
