ESSENCE OF NUDE—When Vaughn Lewis of Magnan Projects agreed to curate July 2009, little did he know that he would also be asked to participate in an experiment! For months, curators have been saying that they wished there were more days in the month so they could pick more works. As part of the selection of the July 2009 calendar, Lewis was asked to curate August—so he got to pick 62 pieces (with no duplicates). Lewis was very excited about the selection process and the fact that he was the first to get this opportunity. He themed this calendar as a dedication to the skill, sensibility and aesthetic of the art of the nude. When asked about the experience, he was almost at a loss for words, “I had to look at every artist, not to miss anyone, especially newcomers.” For August, Lewis chose Haydee Torres’ Angela to launch the month—an evocative and skillful contemporary image of the purposeful and the accidental combined.

The 31 artworks represented in August, 2009, in day order are by: 1* Haydee Torres, 2 Jon Rettich, 3 Scott Lawson, 4 Mollie Kellogg, 5 Sara Swan, 6 Jean Marcellino, 7 Colleen Martin, 8 Chanit Roston, 9 David Michael Hollander, 10 Joseph Mays, 11 Lucinda Luvaas, 12 Frank Olesen, 13 Tina Johnston, 14 Terry Hinkle, 15* Grant Besley, 16 Donelli J. DiMaria, 17 Ilene Skeen, 18 Janet A. Cook, 19 C. Charles Wang, 20 Donna Cleary, 21 Stephen Panoushek, 22 Randy Thurman, 23 Tony Lee, 24 Harald Grote, 25 Susan (SZN) Kraft, 26 Dan McCormack, 27* Eric Angeloch, 28 John Luce Lockett, 29* Roger Cummiskey, 30* Emily Stedman, 31 Francien Krieg.
