OPENING RECEPTION for OIL SLICK: contribute to the Gulf Coast's recovery

Oil can be used for good, as we'll prove this Saturday in Bushwick, during what's sure to be a great opening reception for OIL SLICK, a show Gitana Rosa is putting on with Bushwick Open Studios.

The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has ravaged the environment for six weeks now, and it's time to fight back. A diverse group of participating artists, all of whom use oil as a medium, will donate 35 percent of the proceeds from OIL SLICK to The Nature Conservancy, an environmental organization working to help restore and relieve wildlife in the affected region.

Opening night will feature a live DJ and the band Himalayas. They're a great act and not to be missed.

Bruno Perillo, John Plunkett, Andres Garcia-Pena, Alexandra Pacula, Adam Miller and many more are showing their work, featuring a little something for everyone.

Where: The Bogart Street Studios, 1 Grattan St. at Bogart
When: Saturday, June 5, from 5 to 10 p.m.

Directions: L to Morgan, walk out the Harrison exit.
