But when the Bob Mackie gown was stolen off a hotel luggage trolley a day before opening night at the Hollywood Bowl, its owner, Carol Channing, conveyed how a true star acts -- with oodles of grace and cool. No wonder the kids are embracing her, again.

Diego Singh's first L.A. show is a mixed bag of mixed messages. The Miami-based Argentine artist has titled every work with a single ampersand, though there are two distinct series of paintings on view. One riffs on the use of CAPTCHAs, those word-like strings of letters and punctuation marks that you often have to enter when conducting transactions online, to prove that an actual human is at the keyboard. Singh adopts the visual idiom of the CAPTCHA -- woozy letters, mixed fonts -- and fills canvases with semi-legible phrases ("taste and waste," "her mouth," "Anna Wintour")
