Bringing in the New—This April 2013 Best-of-the-Rest calendar displays all genres except nudes. With twenty-eight artworks making their calendar debut, it is a study in personality and the dominance of portrait. Barebrush founder and CEO, Ilene Skeen selected the art and the guest curator, artist, illustrator and teacher, David Reuss, selected the Curators’ Choice nominees. When he submitted his selections, Mr. Reuss wrote:

Great works to choose from!
This simple statement is ringing endorsement of the new Barebrush process.

The three Curators’ Choice nominees selected by Mr. Reuss are: the highly stylized in drawing, Daphne by Stephanie Fuller; the brooding drawing, In Shadow/Self Portrait 2013 by Eddie Torres; and the strongly composed oil painting, Man in Gray by Taehyub Lee. Coincidentally, these three nominees are from New York.

Viewing the entire calendar, the artists represent eight US states, as well as Mexico and Spain.

The 30 artists represented in April, 2013, in day order are: 1* Stephanie Fuller, 2 Dan Simoneau, ISAP, 3 Bruce Erikson, 4 Annamaria Nieves, 5 Lynne Levin, 6 Jon Rettich, 7 Jacqui Morgan, 8 Geoffrey Stein, 9 Mateus Costa, 10* Eddie Torres, 11 Eddie Torres, 12 Hector Olvera, Etor, 13 Tai Lin, 14 Darlene Kuhne, 15 Jon Rettich, 16 Pacifico Palumbo, 17 Pacifico Palumbo, 18 Jon Rettich, 19 Taehyub Lee, 20* Taehyub Lee, 21 Dan Simoneau, ISAP, 22 Pacifico Palumbo, 23 Sam Martine, 24 Taehyub Lee, 25 Sam Martine, 26 Roger Cummiskey, 27 Sam Martine, 28 Darlene Kuhne, 29 Rebecca Venn, 30 Guadalupe Herrera.

Three artists, indicated by asterisks (*), are nominated for the Curators Choice Awards. Curators’ Choice nominees receive 8 additional complimentary listings. The top artist receives an additional prize. Viewers can also vote for “The People's Choice,” a poll which includes all of the art in the calendar. The top three artworks in The People's Choice win one (1) complementary listing for their artists. Winners announced May 1st.

The Barebrush Provenance for each artwork is viewable by clicking on the calendar thumbnail (above) or on the caption under the artwork from each artist’s Barebrush Gallery page. The Barebrush program of retiring artworks that have been selected for three calendars is designed to encourage all artists to show their best new work and keep their online galleries fresh and interesting.
