Creativity & Diversity— Founder and director of 32 Fine Arts Gallery, Brigitte St. Ouen (pronounced san twon) is dynamic and decisive. Ms. St. Ouen chose Chromatic Sequence No. 11, The Mystery before Time by New York artist, Michael Price, to begin the month. During the selection process, she offered little commentary. She was surprised at the diversity and creativity of the artists, and would have liked to see more sculpture.
Barebrush curators are allowed to select work previously chosen because multiple validations by diverse curators are a benefit. However, two popular artworks will be “retired,” having now been in three calendars: Sarah in Red by Jean Marcellino and Shammi by William Jobling. It is a goal of Barebrush to show a good variety of new work in each calendar. As a tribute to Ms. St. Ouen's unique vision, October 2010 is the calendar debut for twenty-four artworks. Five Barebrush artists are making their calendar debut: Michael Price, Bill Foote, Geoffrey Stein, Janet E. Gorman and Robert Goldsworthy.
Barebrush founder, Ilene Skeen, also noted “I tried to grasp the theme of Brigitte's selections, and discovered it when sequencing the art for placement into the calendar. Each image practically jumped into its appointed day, making this one of the easiest calendars to assemble. My conclusion is that presenting a group show is a matter of selecting excellent and diverse artworks which complement and each other and show well together.”The 31 artists represented in October, 2010, in day order are: 1* Michael Price, 2 Donelli J. DiMaria, 3 Jean Marcellino, 4 Kelly Croisdale, 5* Roger Cummiskey, 6 Dan McCormack, 7 Bill Foote, 8 Penelope Przekop, 9 Anthony Gordon, 10 Tina Johnston, 11 Guadalupe Herrera, 12 Geoffrey Stein, 13* Kasper Holten, 14 Joseph Mays, 15 Lucinda Luvaas, 16 Peter Wong King, 17 Merrill Brace, 18 Emily Stedman, 19 Tai Lin, 20 Kathy Ostman-Magnusen , 21 Michael Seif, 22* Janet E Gorman, 23 Adrienne Mills, 24 Bill Teitsworth, NWS, 25* Guenter Knop, 26 Kimberly Berg, 27 Christopher Smith, 28 William Jobling, 29 Robert Goldsworthy, 30 Robert Nizamov, 31 Ilene Skeen.
*Curators' Choice nominee. Nominees for the N*de-of-the-Month were selected by the guest curator as Curator's Choice. All barebrush curators have an opportunity to rank the Curator's Choice in their own special poll. Winners determined by a statistical combination of the curators and popular votes.
