Black History Month: Beyond Black and White -- 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 three Curators' Choice nominees for February, (starred dates in the list): 1* Untitled (The Dance) (photography) by William Zuback of West Allis, WI; 6* Aferrado (photography) by Tony Lee of , Panama; 10* Nude Woman Sunbathing. (photography) by Ricardo Arnaldo of Miami, FL.

Artworks making their calendar debut: 5. Eleven artworks are being retired, having now appeared in three calendars: 2 Halves by Peter Wong King of Cochiti Lake, NM; The Barrier by Joseph Mays of Louisville, KY; Dimittere by Kathy Ostman-Magnusen of New York, NY; Enlighten by William Zuback of West Allis, WI; Simple Machines by Joseph Mays of Louisville, KY; 1920 by Guenter Knop of , NY; In to the blue by Gabriel Sanchez of Mexico City, MEXICO; Claire_W_3-10-07--01BH by Dan McCormack of Accord, NY; Self-Portrait, Washington DC, 1968 by J. Wayne Higgs of Hughesville, MD; Low key water drops by Peter Wong King of Cochiti Lake, NM; Circuitboard Jungle #34 (Daniella's Tribe) by Joseph Mays of Louisville, KY.
