May Days of Nudes -- Guest Curator DS Wade is an independent curator, art administrator and artist. Ms. Wade, a native of the Midwest, has juried and curated shows in Michigan and New York, including shows for Rogue Productions, NYC, The Box Factory, St Josephs, MI, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, MI, and First Street Gallery, NYC. As an artist, Ms. Wade has exhibited in many states across US. This is her third time curating for Barebrush. She noted,

"I am looking for most are sound compositions in all genres that compel me me to examine the works more closely....compositional elements tell a story about the artist and their creative vision."
