September: Revealing Selves—When guest curator, Vaughn Lewis, gallerist and preparator for MagnanMetz Gallery (NYC) selected the PhotoArt N*des for September 2012, he did the job swiftly and surely using the electronic lightbox invented by Barebrush founder and CEO, Ilene Skeen. The lightbox makes the job of art selection and arrangement easier and more efficient. Eighteen artists world-wide submitted 267 photographs, and Mr. Lewis’ task was to select 30 for the 30 days of September.
To start the month, he chose Aspects of Narcissus No. 10 by William Thierfelder of Bayport, NY. Almost to himself he mused, “I like this. We all have something of Narcissus about us.”
In his personal statement for the September art selection, Mr. Lewis wrote:
Through spontaneity and directness, what’s gone and what’s left behind, I am interested in the investigation of love, anger, compassion, grace. The artist has a lot to say. I will be listening.Indeed, looking at each of the photographic selections for September, we see a concentration of subject and attitude. In contrast to the overt emotional theme of the N*des-of-the-Month calendar, the PhotoArt N*des calendar is circumspect. It is about feelings one step removed. Our responses to these images show us by implication who we are and where we stand, sit or crawl.
One photograh is being retired in this calendar, having been selected now for three calendars, Abstract Mounds by BlindWolf Photography, T. F. McDonald of Lexington, KY.The 30 artists represented in September, 2012, in day order are:
