Call for Entries. Prizes. Video. Includes Entry for July Calendar Contest.

New York, NY – May 5, 2009. All visual artists are invited by BAREBRUSH founder and CEO, Ilene Skeen to submit art of the nude for the June 2009 N*des-of-the-Month calendar contest.

Guest curator for the June exhibition is Mr. Del-Bouree Bach, a widely-collected and represented artist, very active in numerous art organizations on their boards and their art comittees. When asked what he will be looking for in the June calendar, Mr. Bach said:

I will be looking for mastery of the medium, but also uniqueness -- something that really grabs me. So it's really about two things: all the normal things --- good design, technique, etc., but also, and sometimes more so, "out there."
