Spring Drama, Part I — When our announced curator for May suddenly became unavailable, Della Clason Sperling, dear friend to Barebrush, jumped enthusiastically into the breach to select the Curators' Choice nominees. Ms. Sperling is an art historian, certified art appraiser and dedicated art lover.

The five Curators' Choice nominees selected by Ms. Sperling are: an evocative and mysterious pastel, Heat by Jerry Ralya of Craftsbury Common, VT; a strongly composed and authoritative pastel, Yisrael Again and Again by Jean Marcellino of New York, NY; an impressively minimal oil, Anticipation by Sharon Sieben of Mesa, AZ; a beautiful nude portrait oil, Profile with Bare Brest by David Schulz of Middletown, CT; and sweet and lovely graphite, Saturday Night Daydream by Robin Kappy of New York, NY.

Four artists are making their calendar debut in May: J.R. Leveroni from Pompano Beach, FL; Robert Ferguson from Escondido, CA; Neal Smithwillow from Eastpoint, FL and Terence Kelly from Manchester,UK.

The 31 artists represented in May, 2013, in day order are: 1* Jerry Ralya, 2 Bill Foote, 3 Victoria Coyle, 4 Jacqueline Saunders, 5* Jean Marcellino, 6 Kathy Ostman-Magnusen, 7 Deb Miller, 8 Robert Ferguson, 9 Profile Deleted, 10 Judith Carlin, 11 Terence Kelly, 12 C. Charles Wang, 13 Vaughn Butland, 14 Darlene Kuhne, 15 Chanit Roston, 16* Sharon Sieben, 17 Christopher Smith, 18 Jacqui Morgan, 19* David Schulz, 20 Bruce Erikson, 21 David Michael Hollander, 22 JR Leveroni, 23* Robin Kappy, 24 Thomas Stevens, 25 Neal Smithwillow, 26 Pacifico Palumbo, 27 William Jobling, 28 Terry Hinkle, 29 Paul Rybarczyk, 30 Donelli J. DiMaria, 31 Dennis Young.

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 June 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.
