 "Stonewall Series: No. 5" (gouache on paper), by Natalie MacKnight, in her show "Listening to the Wind,'' at 6 Bridges Gallery, Maynard, Mass., through May 26.

The gallery says:
"The exhibition show is a series of drawings and mixed media on paper in which the artist depicts the sense of peace and tranquility that she draws from nature. As a child, Macknight was fascinated by rocks and this grew into an appreciation for all the subtle aspects of nature that draw the eye. 'Listening to the Wind' celebrates nature in all its meditative strength and energy and invites the viewers to see what MacKnight sees in the natural world.''
