For the month of April, two artists at Boston Sculptors Gallery are bringing a little dark humor to environmental crises—without watering down the issues. In Uh Oh!, Jessica Straus explores rising sea levels and water scarcity, transforming non-potable water signs into storage containers and building blimp-like sculptures from maps, as seen above. Elsewhere, Michelle Lougee combines her signature material—plastic bags—with papyrus, cloth and other discarded items in Contra Naturam’s textural collage drawings, while her mixed-media installation Ubiquitous gives viewers an up-close look at the microorganisms present in our everyday lives. Test the waters at Boston Sculptors Gallery, where the exhibits are on view from March 30 through May 1, and don’t miss the opening reception on April 1.
