STARTING WITH A TWANG—Tom Taffe, artist and officer of the Salmagundi Club, the oldest art club in NYC, has a definite sense of art and fun. Taffe launches the month with humor in the shape of Mark Behme’s “The Other Woman,” a fully functional guitar. A number of barebrush artists appear in the N*des-of-the-Month calendar for the first time: Eric Angeloch, Aryn Chapman, Kelly Croisdale, Raymond Smith, and C. Charles Wang.

In the selected work, it is notable that all of the images in the calendar thumbnails demonstrate strong composition even at the reduced size. Taffe looked at the detail pages to confirm the artist’s skill and the artwork’s impact. The range from realism to abstraction is also notable. Efficient and professional, Taffe studied each artist’s body of work, made a selection (or not), and moved on. In the end, he wound up with too many and reluctantly had to eliminate. “Good fun” was his summary comment.

The 30 artworks represented in April, 2009, in day order are by: 1* Mark Behme, 2 Joseph Mays, 3 Jennie Rosenbaum, 4 C. Charles Wang, 5 Jean Marcellino, 6 Tim Woodhouse, 7 Cindy Sibilsky, 8 Randy Thurman, 9 Jacqui Morgan, 10 Guenter Knop, 11 Aryn Chapman, 12 Tony Lee, 13* David Michael Hollander, 14 Lucinda Luvaas, 15 Eric Angeloch, 16 Mollie Kellogg, 17 Harald Grote, 18 Janet A. Cook, 19* Donelli J. DiMaria, 20 R. Butler, 21* Christopher Smith, 22 Raymond Smith, 23 Will Maller, 24 BEN RIVIERE-NAZARENO, 25 Haydee Torres, 26 Francien Krieg, 27 Kelly Croisdale, 28* Judith Araujo-Volkmann, 29 Chanit Roston, 30 Joyce DiBona.
