INTENSE DIVERSIONS—Sarah Hardesty is a young, energetic artist, the assistant director of a well–established Chelsea art gallery and independent curator. She approached the curation task iteratively—sweeping through, taking notes, and sweeping through again and again, taking more notes, crossing out, adding. It was a silent, intense process. When she was finished, she read her choices and said that she enjoyed it.
Some of her choices push the genre: is it nude? is it figure? Maybe, maybe not, but is it fun? Definitely! Emotive power and skill were keys to her selection.The 31 artworks represented in May, 2009, in day order are by: 1* Donna Cleary, 2 Leon Nicholas Kalas, 3 Susan (SZN) Kraft, 4 Lucinda Luvaas, 5 Grant Besley, 6 C.
