Barebrush Announces January & February N*des-of-the-Month

Happy New Year — Tom Picard, artist, and long-time member of the Salmagundi Club, selected the January and February 2010 N*des-of-the-Month with an eye towards variety and originality. His frequent comment was “Let’s take that one, it’s different.” Looking at the calendar itself, you can see sweetness of his choices — some are new to the calendars and others have been seen before. Old and new alike, they play well together.

If we are still shell shocked with two wars continuing, with the loss of more than 7 million jobs since September of 2008, and with the federal budget deficit being out of control, we may be relieved to see that January and February N*des of the Month offer a welcome respite to these woes, as the customary February thaw is a brief relief from winter. February is luscious without being impolite—truly a calendar to soothe. At the end of the session, Picard noted that he liked the process, calling it “interesting and fun,” and that he “tried to vary it.”

The 31 artists represented in January, 2010, in day order are:
