Design aesthetic is the premise behind the July 2008 calendar. Guest curator, Tim Newton, is a dedicated and enthusiastic collector. He is the founder and curator of “American Masters at SCNY,” an annual exhibition. For the July calendar, the process was daunting. Over 600 artworks were submitted and Tim deliberated over each choice. Long and careful is a good description of his afternoon's work. His selections are notable for the variety of approaches and their consistently strong images.

Tim selected 31 pieces by 26 artists mindful of the curator's guidelines. “Good design,” he said during a break, “Is the major factor.” In the end, only four artists were selected for multiples: Guenter Knop, Jean Marcellino, Jennie Rosenbaum and Sara Swan. For placement, Tim selected “Amy” by Sara Swan for July 1st honors, “Elyssa” by Jon Rettich for July 2nd, and “Fit” by John Luce Lockett for July 4th. About Sara's work, Tim noted simply, “I am a fan.”

The 31 artworks represented in July, 2008, in day order are by: 1* Sara Swan, 2* Jon Rettich, 3 Sara Swan, 4 John Luce Lockett, 5 Joseph Mays, 6 Serge Lis, 7 Carmiah Frank, 8 Chanit Roston, 9 Roger Cummiskey, 10* Harvey Mercadoocasio, 11 Jacqui Morgan, 12 Richard Rabkin, 13 Tim Woodhouse, 14 Donelli J. DiMaria, 15 Edd Tokarz Harnas, 16* Christopher Smith, 17 A. Galban, 18 Jim VanKirk, 19 Cindy Sibilsky, 20 Jennie Rosenbaum, 21 Jennie Rosenbaum, 22 Sara Swan, 23 Ilene Skeen, 24 Trisha Lambi, 25 Haydee Torres, 26 Jean Marcellino, 27 Jean Marcellino, 28 Linda Moses, 29 Yukako, 30 Guenter Knop, 31* Guenter Knop.
