Mel Leipzig

Mel Leipzig: Everything is Paintable, a State of the Arts documentary special,  was nationally distributed by PBS in January 2013.  Enjoy this touching portrait of the New Jersey-based realist painter Mel Leipzig. The program was produced over a 3-year period by his friend and neighbor (and State of the Arts producer) Eric Schultz.
