Black History Month Observed -- Guest curator, Vaughn Lewis, is an independent curator with a long history at Barebrush. For this month, Mr. Lewis wrote:

For the February calendar, and in recognition of Black History month, I was in search of works which captured Black aesthetics, as an atmosphere, a feeling, tone, and body.

Each time I'm asked to curate, I always look forward to revisiting each artist's work over the years, as well as becoming familiar with new members added to the Barebrush family. In some ways the strong work viewed this year during the selection process made my job bittersweet; SO many strong works to choose from, but I was limited to only 28 for each calendar. However, in the end, I think you'll find all three calendars delightful treats.

Mr. Lewis selected five Curators' Choice nominees for February, (starred dates in the list): 1* standard of beauty (drawing) by Taehyub Lee of manhattan, NY; 7* Golden Torso (sculpture) by Robert Markey of Ashfield, MA; 10* back view (charcoal/carbon) by Mateus Costa of Cheltenham, PA; 22* Leaning Man (charcoal) by Jean Marcellino of New York, NY; 24* N*de St*dy 2009 D (Charcoal) by C. Charles Wang of VA.

Artworks making their calendar debut: 8. Seven artworks are being retired, having now appeared in three calendars: N*de St*dy 2009 D by C. Charles Wang of , VA; Classical Torso by Larry Scaturro of Brooklyn, NY; Mysterious by Ilene Skeen of New York, NY; Spring Studio Saturday by Robin Kappy of New York, NY; Grief by Michael Hennessy of New York, NY; Fading Away by Geoffrey Stein of New York, NY; Treestand by Gary Paul Stutler of Vallejo, CA.
