Changes—In March 2013, Barebrush founder and CEO, Ilene Skeen, selected the art. Artist and independent curator, D. S. Wade, selected the Curators' Choice nominees.

When asked about this change, Ms. Skeen said:

With the implementation of e-commerce, it becomes more important than ever for Barebrush to present consistently fresh, new art to the public. I want to encourage Barebrush artists to actively manage their work in the monthly calendar competitions. Artists who go month after month without changing their display are not serving themselves well. They are not getting the most out of the Barebrush website. Most tragically, they become boring. We absolutely need everyone's best and freshest work. This calendar presents 31 new artworks making their calendar debut.
Thus going forward, Ms. Skeen will continue to make the initial selection of art. A guest curator will select the Curator's Choice nominees. As in the past, all of the Barebrush curators will have an opportunity to review the art and vote.

The five Curators Choice nominees, selected by Ms. Wade are: an oil painting, Sensuous by Sandy Ryan of Kew Gardens, NY; Back Stretch, a drawing, by Harald Grote of Rydal, PA; a drawing, Friday Morning in Gowanus by Robin Kappy of New York, NY; a drawing, Rebekah's Back by Michael Bailey of Cottonwood AZ; and an oil painting, Bath #2 by Donelli J. DiMaria, of Santa Fe, NM. Ms. Wade selected Sensuous to launch the month.

These artists are making their calendar debut in March: Michael Bailey from Cottonwood, AZ; Mateus Costa from Cheltenham, PA; and Annamaria Nieves from Brooklyn, NY.

The 31 artists represented in March, 2013, in day order are: 1* Sandy Ryan, 2 Tom Morgan, 3 Lynne Levin, 4* Harald Grote, 5 Annamaria Nieves, 6 David Michael Hollander, 7 Chanit Roston, 8 Jon Rettich, 9 Alex Knowlton, 10* Robin Kappy, 11 Chuck Miller, 12 Vaughn Butland, 13 Marsha Karagheusian, 14 C. Charles Wang, 15 Elizabeth Sowell-Zak, 16 Judith Carlin, 17 Elizabeth Rothschild, 18 William Jobling, 19 Mateus Costa, 20* Michael Bailey, 21 Rebecca Venn, 22* Donelli J. DiMaria, 23 Darlene Kuhne, 24 Pacifico Palumbo, 25 Paul Rybarczyk, 26 Jean Marcellino, 27 William Thierfelder, 28 Jacqui Morgan, 29 Marie-Paule Martin, 30 Thomas Stevens, 31 Sam Martine.

Each of the artists selected for the calendar receives two (2) complimentary listings. Five artists, indicated by asterisks (*), are nominated for the Curators Choice Awards. Curators’ Choice nominees receive 8 additional complimentary listings. The top three artists receive additional prizes. Viewers can also vote for “My Favorite N*de,” a poll which includes all of the art in the calendar. The top three artworks in My Favorite N*de win one (1) complementary listing for their artists. Winners announced April 1st.

The Barebrush Provenance for each artwork is viewable by clicking on the calendar thumbnail (above) or on the caption under the artwork from each artist’s Barebrush Gallery page. The Barebrush program of retiring artworks that have been selected for three calendars is designed to encourage all artists to show their best new work and keep their online galleries fresh and interesting.
