Comfortable Skin — Guest curator, Ann Aptaker has been an arts professional for over twenty years as curator, exhibition designer and art writer in museums and galleries on the east and west coasts of the United States. In addition to her present work as an independent curator and art writer in New York, Ann is an adjunct professor of Art History at New York Institute of Technology.

Ms. Aptaker selected the five Curators' Choice nominees for October. To start the month, she gives us a close-up torso in oil, At Rest by Linda Streicher of Morristown, NJ. Ms. Aptaker also selected a vibrant watercolor, Melonie by Darlene Kuhne of Arvada, CO; a quick and well-composed pastel, Green Words by Peter Bloch of New York, NY; a horrific street scene in oil, New York, Lower East Side by Robert Markey of Ashfield, MA; and a cerebral drawing, Duality of the S-Curve by Lindsay Rabson of Merrick, NY.

These artists are making their calendar debut: David Christiansen from Clearwater, KS; Peter Bloch from New York, NY; Lue Isaac from Seattle, WA; and Peggy Dean from Croton-on-Hudson, NY.
