“This is My N*de”—Celebrating the Individual Approach—February 2009 is the thirtieth barebrush N*des-of-the-Month calendar. The work of each artist stands distinctly and recognizably from the others, definitively individual. One marvels at the differences which the art of the nude genre continues to inspire. “Recognition for our artists is what we’re after,” notes barebrush CEO Ilene Skeen.

The curator, Della Clason Sperling, is co–founder of Dulack & Sperling Art LLC, specializing in art advisory, certified appraisals and collections management. Sperling bemoans that February is far too short . “I’m cheated,” she jokes, but comments that she could have picked several more days worth, at least. Sperling is no stranger to barebrush, having curated August 2007. She marvels at the “incredible technique” and the impressive increase in the quality and quantity. “Fabulous” is her one-word summary.

The 28 artworks represented in February, 2009, in day order are by: 1* Jean Marcellino, 2 R. Butler, 3 Roger Cummiskey, 4 Judith Araujo-Volkmann, 5 Sara Swan, 6 Tim Woodhouse, 7 Donelli J. DiMaria, 8 Haydee Torres, 9 Chanit Roston, 10 Emily Rich, 11 Jacqui Morgan, 12 Francien Krieg, 13* Guenter Knop, 14 Angelique Moselle Price, 15 Ilene Skeen, 16* Joseph Mays, 17 Randy Thurman, 18 Susan (SZN) Kraft, 19 BEN RIVIERE-NAZARENO, 20 Lucinda Luvaas, 21 Cindy Sibilsky, 22* Emily Stedman, 23 William Thierfelder, 24 Christopher Smith, 25 John Luce Lockett, 26 Joyce DiBona, 27* Terry Hinkle, 28 Mollie Kellogg.
