For the February calendar, and in recognition of Black History month, I was in search of works which captured Black aesthetics, as an atmosphere, a feeling, tone, and body.
Each time I'm asked to curate, I always look forward to revisiting each artist's work over the years, as well as becoming familiar with new members added to the Barebrush family. In some ways the strong work viewed this year during the selection process made my job bittersweet; SO many strong works to choose from, but I was limited to only 28 for each calendar. However, in the end, I think you'll find all three calendars delightful treats.
Mr. Lewis selected three Curators' Choice nominees for February, (starred dates in the list): 1* The Anderson Seat (print (etch/litho/mono/wdcut)) by Ilene Skeen of New York, NY; 11* Three Views of Desi, 2015 (watercolor) by Jacqueline Saunders of Burke, VA; 17* african (pastel) by Taehyub Lee of New York, NY.
