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. Charles Wang, 7 Kelly Croisdale, 8 David Michael Hollander, 9 Jean Marcellino, 10* Angelique Moselle Price, 11* Michael Seif, 12* Chanit Roston, 13 Gerard Lartigue, 14 Dan McCormack, 15 R. Butler, 16 Janet A. Cook, 17 Harald Grote, 18 William Thierfelder, 19 Randy Thurman, 20 Guenter Knop, 21 Joseph Mays, 22 Donelli J. DiMaria, 23 Francien Krieg, 24 Ilene Skeen, 25 Kelly Borsheim, 26 Kathryn Wasserman, 27* Irina Sarnetskaya, 28 Will Maller, 29 Bill Teitsworth, NWS, 30 Christopher Smith, 31 Kasper Holten.
