Actress Brooke Adams is used to being on one side of the camera. But during a recent visit to the set of the TV series "Monk," which stars her husband Tony Shalhoub, Adams found herself behind the lens instead. The crew was on location at an old Italian villa in the California wine country and the light was just right, Adams recalls, so she snapped a photograph.

Kathy Butterly does for sculpture what digital technology does for information: pack so much into such small spaces that it's impossible to reconcile an object's literal dimensions with the kicks it delivers. Size matters, but not like it used to. Think of what Butterly does as the microscopic sublime. Intimately and gently, she blows your mind, time after time, and never the same way. At Shoshana Wayne Gallery, “Lots of Little Love Affairs” consists of 15 tabletop sculptures the New York artist has made over the last 18 months.

THE best time I ever had at a drive-in movie was with my dog. I'm a little sorry to be putting this down on paper, because my mother believes the best time I ever had at a drive-in was with her. We went to see "Gone With the Wind" when I was maybe 13, just before I hit the age at which I was mortified to be seen in the same hemisphere with my parents. That was fun, sure. But nothing like a double feature with a cocker spaniel. Of course it was summer.
