Oakland-based artist David Burke is exhibiting his ink drawings (one of which is pictured above) on the second floor of the Main library at 1550 Oak St. through Saturday, April 26.

Burke’s ink drawings possess a toxic beauty that celebrate our desire to build, innovate and create. His work pays tribute to the resilience of the natural world and encourages viewers to reconsider our complicated and sometimes convoluted relationship to the environment.

A reception and artist’s talk will take place Wednesday, April 23, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Regina K. Stafford Meeting Room.
