Spring Drama, Part 2 — The announced May curator suddenly became unavailable. Art historian and dear friend to Barebrush, Della Clason Sperling, served as juror of awards to select the Curators' Choice nominees. Barebrush founder and CEO, Ilene Skeen commented:

The goal of Barebrush has always been to increase the awareness, acceptance and enthusiasm for the art of the nude. I rely on Barebrush artists to keep the work in their gallery fresh and exciting, and select accordingly. The input of guest curators is vital to provide breadth. I am grateful that Ms. Sperling was able to step into the breach and delighted with her Curators' Choice.

The three Curators' Choice nominees in the PhotoArt nudes are: Legs with Rose by BlindWolf Photography, T. F. McDonald, of Lexington, KY; Guaicaipuro by Tony Lee of Panama; and Door 6 by Joseph Mays of Louisville, KY.

New to Barebrush, Robert Copelan of Lynchburg, VA is making his calendar debut.
