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.
The Figure, A Bay Area Legacy, the latest exhibition of works at Gary Francis Fine Art, opens tomorrow night at 6 p.m. as part of Alameda’s second Friday art opening tradition.
Artists exhibiting evocative works celebrating the human body include: Kanna Aoki, Claudia Bicen, Olivia Chen, Gary Comoglio, Natasha Dikareva, Nathaniel Evans, Jane Fisher, Kim Frohsin, Chris Kanyusik, Diego Marcial Rios, Erica Norelius, Shilo Ratner, Fernando Reyes, Brandon Smith, Sandy Walker and Nina Katz. The show runs through April 27.
