Diluvian Reign: New Encaustics by Miranda Lake 

They're back! After a seven-month post-Katrina hiatus, the Jonathan Ferrara Gallery has not only reopened again, but is actually on a higher level. That's because the original downstairs exhibition space is leased to another business so the gallery is now upstairs. On the walls, Miranda Lake holds sway with ethereal mixed-media encaustic works that meld her innate sense of whimsy with her experience finding her studio flooded and artworks ruined in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Consequently, she says her new works explore "themes of psychological unease and renewal" where larger than life birds "confront, judge or bear witness to a complex world where not everything is as it seems. The anxieties of the post-diluvian world permeate both waking and sleeping hours, yet these struggles may bear strange and beautiful fruit." -- D. Eric Bookhardt

Through May 31

Jonathan Ferrara Gallery, 843 Carondelet St., 522-5471;
