Busy Fall Ahead — Guest curator for September, Claudia Seymour, was unavailable for the August calendar, so she graciously agreed to select the September Curators' Choice nominees. All Barebrush curators will still have the opportunity to see the art and vote on the selections. The public also votes in the Curators' Choice poll.
Ms. Seymour selected Angular by Peter King of Cochiti Lake, NM for the honor of launching both the eighth year of Barebrush calendars and the 2013-2014 art season. She also selected: Escalando by Tony Lee of Panama; and Ambivalence by Michael Seif of Watertown MA.
Two artworks are being retired from the competitions this month having now been in three Barebrush calendars. They are: Contortion by BlindWolf Photography, T. F. McDonald of Lexington, KY: and Relax under the morning sun by Gabriel Sanchez of Mexico City , MEXICO. Of course, this art will remain on Barebrush, accessible directly on the artists' pages and from the Barebrush Calendar Archives.
One artist, Richard Biemann from Sheboygan, WI, is making his calendar debut this month.
