Guest curator, Michel Allen, director of the Allen Gallery in Chelsea, selected twelve artists from among the 39 who entered. She reviewed 474 pieces (a record) in record time. “It was a lot of fun,” she said, “I especially enjoyed picking the top five.”
“Michel’s speed was amazing,” says barebrush CEO Ilene Skeen. “She kept saying, ‘Oh, I really like this one,’ and ‘I love this!’ as the cursor flew over the curator’s lightbox and she selected her picks.” Michel especially liked the abstract figures of Emily Rich and the strong graphics and attitudes of the work by Chanit Roston. Suhas Tavkar delighted her with his smoking Nude10a, and she called Jacqui Morgan’s Mystery Woman, “magnificent.”The 30 artworks represented in April, 2008, in day order are by: 1* Name Withdrawn, 2* Roger Cummiskey, 3 Chanit Roston, 4 Chanit Roston, 5 Name Withdrawn, 6 Chanit Roston, 7 Chanit Roston, 8 Chanit Roston, 9 Chanit Roston, 10 Chanit Roston, 11 Emily Rich, 12 Emily Rich, 13 Donelli J.
