Razzle Dazzle — A native of the Midwest, Ms. Wade has been recognized as both a figurative artist and arts administrator since the year 2000. Most recently she was the administrator for the NY based artist cooperative First Street Gallery and Director of Special Events for Rogue Gallery. Ms. Wade previously selected the Barebrush Nudes of the Month for January 2009. In selecting the work for the December calendars, she had written:
What I will be looking for most in each artwork is a sound composition that compels me to examine the art
more closely. Next I will examine the work’s narrative aspect. I love art that is narrative by its very nature.
The struck pose, the wisp of a hair or perhaps the painting of an object in a well-lit window. These things
tell a story about the artist and the artist’s vision, while allowing me, the viewer, room to form my own
conclusion. To me this is the essence of great art.
Ms. Wade selected GARAGE STUDIO 6 by William Thierfelder of Bayport, NY to launch the month. True to her idea of examining the works closely, she was intrigued with the multiple images of the chair and the shadows. She also liked Thierfelder's abstraction – replication called the Kaleidoscope Studio series, choosing three of them. In a similar vein, but different feeling, she chose Two of a Kind by Gabriel Sanchez of Mexico. Other favorites were Golden Angel by Tony Lee of Panama and Waiting, which she called “A pure, classic nude,” by Guenter Knop of New York City. Ms. Wade remarked several times how pleased she was to see the selection include a large variety of male nudes, many more than her initial selection in 2009.
Five artworks are retiring with this calendar, having now been selected for three calendars: In addition to Waiting, two others by Guenter Knop, African Mask and My Muse are also retiring and will be visible on the Barebrush Honors page as well as each calendar in which the art appears, the artist’s Featured Artist page, and the artist’s calendar gallery. Another retiring artwork, Midnite is by Corrie Ancone of Sydney Australia. Finally, Fertility Goddess, a work by Featured Artist Janet E Gorman, is also retiring, and has the additional honor of ending 2012 with its placement on New Year's Eve.
