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.
