Katherine Meyer's drawing of Crown Beach

Large (3-foot by 4-foot) charcoal drawings by Alameda resident Katherine Meyer, featuring Crown Beach (pictured), the Elsie Roehmer Bird Sanctuary, and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Regional Shoreline are currently on display at the Triton Museum in Santa Clara.

"The purpose of my drawings is to remind people of the restorative power of nature when we experience it slowly, in solitude," said Meyer.

The opening reception at the Triton Museum takes place Friday, Feb. 21, from 6 to 8 p.m. and is free and open to the public. The show continues through May 4.

The Triton Museum of Art is located at 1505 Warburton Ave. in Santa Clara. For more information, call (408) 247-2438 or visit www.tritonmuseum.org.

In a concurrent show, Meyer will have smaller works on display at the Vargas Gallery at Mission College (3000 Mission College Blvd.) in Santa Clara from Wednesday, Feb. 19, until April 5. For more on that show, visit www.missioncollege.edu.
