Reviews by David Pagel (D.P.) and Leah Ollman (L.O.). Compiled by Grace Krilanovich. Critics' Choices John Baldessari: Blue Line (Holbein) One of the most sharply focused shows of recent memory. It's also one of the most moving. Its two pieces, installed in three galleries, reveal a side of the 78-year-old artist often overshadowed by the irreverent wit and gee-whizzing of Baldessari's hilariously deadpan pictures. Mortality and memory take center stage while leaving plenty of room for humor and happenstance.

You might know Claremont as that town with five liberal arts colleges and two graduate schools within its city limits. What you might not know is that it boasts a vibrant downtown, called Claremont Village, where more than 150 mom-and-pop restaurants, boutiques, art galleries and music venues create a relaxed atmosphere for all ages. If that weren't enticing enough, the Metrolink/Transit Center drops off passengers just a baseball toss away. The tab: A king bed at Casa 425 begins at $195.

It has become an end-of-year tradition among the Times home staff: We compile a list of our most-viewed features on latimes.com, then nod (and occasionally smack our heads) over which stories clicked most with readers online. Oh, the brutal truths of Web metrics. PHOTO GALLERY: Most viewed homes of 2012 Our biggest reader-pleaser online has always been the home pictorial - the photo gallery of a house, condo or apartment that embodies our times, whether that means the design challenges of everyday living, the trends of an ever-evolving culture or simply the aspirations of those who love to dream of what might be, someday.

Artists throughout the ages have faithfully preserved and even improved upon the fashions of each era, and today is no different. This month and next, three artists -- two photographers and a painter -- are staging showings of works that capture unique moments in the evolution of fashion.

L.A. artist Craig Stecyk has a reputation for making socially conscious art that's a little too weird for conventional art world transactions. His current project, an elaborate multi-media installation, titled "Northwest Passage" (referring to the migratory path that ducks follow on the Pacific Flyway), is an inquiry into power, victims and victimizers as symbolized by the precarious existence of our friend the duck.

The closing of Santa Ana's Legacy Art Gallery amounted to a blip on the city's cultural radar. But four months later, local artists -- many Latino -- are lamenting the demise of the gallery, which owner Margie Tabor Zuliani turned into a venue not only for Orange County's established artists but also for budding talent from local schools. "It leaves a big void," said muralist Emigdio Vasquez. "This was a special gallery because I think [Zuliani] was more inclusive.

If you think owning an art gallery means holding elegant Champagne receptions for sophisticated clients and fascinating artists every day, think again. Owning a fine art gallery is like running any other small business: It's risky, expensive and challenging. "Too many people go into this business because they think it's going to be fun," said Karl Borenstein, who owns a 7-year-old Santa Monica art gallery bearing his name.

The AAA Electra 99 Co-Op Art Museum and Gallery in Newport Beach--a 26 person co-op of musicians, performing artists and visual artists--is looking for a new location. "We found a spot in Orange that we might be able to afford but we haven't signed a lease," said gallery owner Richard Johnson. We don't know if we can stay in Orange County and we're thinking of Long Beach or Santa Monica." AAA Electra is housed in a '60s office building across from John Wayne Airport.

The lines in Bart Exposito's new paintings at Thomas Solomon Gallery do things the lines in his old paintings didn't: slip away from the shapes they demarcate to float in spaces that are more atmospheric than anything the artist has painted since he began exhibiting 15 years ago. This transformation may have something to do with Exposito's recent move from Los Angeles to Santa Fe and his commute to Albuquerque, where he teaches. Like the landscape he drives through, most of his new works are horizontal.

Anticipation is an undercurrent running through recent work by New York-based artist Rory Devine -- anticipation and imminent loss, if not exactly dread. Two-dozen paintings on canvas and paper, plus one video showing only a fellow absent-mindedly riffing chords on an electric guitar, employ motifs both figurative and abstract, recognizable and allusive. Devine's art is determined to focus on present experience instead of promises of future reward, a point well-taken. Dour but not bleak, the work could still benefit from even greater immediacy of engagement.

The annex at Michael Benevento Gallery holds three large paintings of three-masted sailing ships at sea, the kind that proliferated during the colonizing age of exploration that began half a millennium ago. Shown in various states of full and partial sail, and largely drawn in black acrylic on white painted canvas, these are the vessels whose sailors scanned the globe during their unprecedented journeys. In the main gallery a few doors away, painter Mark Roeder continues a similar scan in what could be called full sail.

For a decade, while traveling to perform in concerts, Moby was looking for a new place to call home. His longtime city of choice, New York, had become so gentrified and expensive that artists - his spiritual kin - were being driven out. "I was looking for a city that was warm in the winter, had access to nature and was primarily filled with weird artists," Moby says, seated in the guest house of his Beachwood Canyon estate. "Honestly, this is the only place that satisfied all the criteria.

The 5-year-old Works art gallery in the Crystal Court shopping mall will be closed by the start of next month, largely because of waning sales, gallery director Richard Iri said Wednesday. Over the past two years, sales have dropped about 40%, Iri said, attributing the decline to general economic doldrums and not to the level in Orange County of art collectors' sophistication.

Growing up in a working-class London suburb beset by dull classes and endless winters, Dean Stockton often escaped into a dream vision of California fueled in equal measure by "Back to the Future" and the skateboard bible Thrasher magazine. "When I was 12 or 13," he recalls, "I watched this guy in 'Back to the Future' holding onto the back of a car skateboarding down beautiful-looking streets in the sunshine and I was like: 'That's where I need to be!'" Decades later, Stockton, who signs his work as "D*Face," finally made it to Southern California, bringing with him a cheeky anything-is-fair-game aesthetic.

Artist Nancy Holt's best-known work, "Sun Tunnels," is outdoors, huge and open to the public - but only a relatively small number of people have seen it in person. It sits on 40 acres of land she bought in a desolate part of the Great Basin Desert in northwest Utah, accessible only by dirt roads with no buildings in sight. There sit four massive concrete tubes, each weighing 22 tons and towering more than 9 feet tall. The tubes are precisely oriented to frame not only landscapes in the distance but also the ever-changing patterns of the sun and stars in the sky. By limiting what someone in a vast open space can see, Holt meant to make the universe more personal.
