French Consul General Opens His SF Home to Local Artists
Each year, in the fall and in the spring, an art committee selects two local artists (at least one is French) and offers them the opportunity to exhibit their work inside the residence. This government initiative is part of a larger project aimed at promoting French art. The artists are selected in partnership with FACS (French American Cultural Society), whose mission is to promote French culture in the Bay Area. Until May 15, the walls of the living room and dining room will display 15 abstract paintings and sculptures by Adam McCauley, an illustrator and musician based in San Francisco. Each work is for sale and the exhibition will be open to the public three times a week. The artist can also set up special visits for viewers by appointment.
