Bringing in the New—This April 2013 calendar is not only new, it is lovely. Barebrush founder and CEO, Ilene Skeen selected the art, and the guest curator, artist, illustrator and teacher, David Reuss, selected the Curators’ Choice nominees. When he submitted his selections, Mr. Reuss wrote:

Great works to choose from!
This simple statement is ringing endorsement of the new Barebrush process.

The five Curators’ Choice nominees selected by Mr. Reuss are: a strong, satisfying drawing by New York artist, Robin Kappy, Sunday Morning Repose; a provocative pastel, In The Distance by Harald Grote of Rydal, PA; a well-composed, mixed media piece THE DECISION, by Rebecca Venn of Kenosha, WI; an enigmatic, large pastel, Woodstock by Jerry Ralya of Craftsbury Common, VT; and a handsome oil over acrylic painting, Zeki, by Barrie Ripin of Bethesda, MD.

Three artists are making their calendar debut in April: Addo Ashong from Snellville, GA; Jerry Ralya from Craftsbury Common, VT; and Dennis Young from New Castle, DE.

The 30 artists represented in April, 2013, in day order are: 1* Robin Kappy, 2 Carmiah Frank, 3 Paul Rybarczyk, 4 Tom Morgan, 5 Darlene Kuhne, 6 Tai Lin, 7 Marie-Paule Martin, 8 Christopher Smith, 9 Bruce Erikson, 10 Jacqui Morgan, 11* Harald Grote, 12 David Michael Hollander, 13 Jean Marcellino, 14 Donelli J.

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 May 1st.
