charcoal drawings

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.
