Gulf Aid art

The effects of the massive BP oil spill are bound to find expression in art, and indeed, the Jonathan Ferrara Gallery in New Orleans has given a handful of artists space to show their visions of oil-covered pelicans, defiant marsh grass shoots and even an oily version of a familiar Sistine Chapel scene. Pieces and prints from the Gulf Aid Art exhibition will be sold at Ferrara’s gallery through July 28, with all proceeds going to the nonprofit Gulf Aid organization.  —KA
