The ++ of Falling in Love — Guest curator for September, Claudia Seymour, former president of the Salmagundi Club, selected the September Curators' Choice nominees for the Best-of-the-Rest calendar. Barebrush publishes three calendars per month. This all non-nude genre, all media calendar is growing in popularity with both the traditional figurative artists and nude art photographers. Each calendar is an opportunity for Barebrush artists to showcase the depth and breadth of their work.
Ms. Seymour selected a sparkling watercolor, Formentera Terrace, by the late Jacqui Morgan of New York City to appear on September 1. Ms. Seymour also chose: a watercolor portrait, E. A. Poe by Rebecca Venn of Kenosha WI; and and oil painting, Valley Stream Picnic by Pacifico Palumbo of Colrain, MA.
Jacqui Morgan (1939-2013) was a superlative watercolor artist, author and a popular Illustration Department professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in NYC since 2000 and was noted for her flagship course IL 126 Watercolor Compositions. A memorial is scheduled for Sept 19 at FIT.
One artist, Richard Bulman of Bellingham, WA, is making his calendar debut this month.
Art in Barebrush calendars is eligible for Falling in Love with N*des++
, our second 2nd "brick & mortar" invitational gallery show. This unique show is exclusive for Barebrush artists to showcase their calendar art. This year, while mostly nude, the show will also include some non-nude art (hence the Falling in Love with N*des++). This show opens on October 17th at the Highline Loft | Chelsea NYC. It is advertised in October NY Gallery Guide. A show catalogue will be available at the gallery. Information about this and our first gallery show in February 2011 is available at Barebrush.com.
