Visitors to the Brea Gallery's watercolor exhibit this month will most likely be surprised by the diverse range of styles.

"Have you seen my 'Phalanges Monster'?" Santa Ana artist J.J. Martin--sporting mascaraed lashes, dreadlocks and a tutu--asked a visitor. If it was the bobbing object at the street corner made of dozens of inflated white surgical gloves bound together to resemble a rotund ball of udders, it was hard to miss. Martin and his "Phalanges Monster," a piece made for public display, are just a few of the oddities you might find during an art walk.

Usually, Laguna Beach is known as a place to shop for works by local artists. But this month, one gallery has decided to bring in some of the biggest names in early 20th century art. An exhibit titled "Modern Masters" features pieces by Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Joan Miro and Henri Matisse on display and for sale at the Fingerhut Gallery. Owner Allan Fingerhut spent almost three years putting the show together.

After years as a successful graphics artist, Roy Butler found another creative direction almost in a flash. It happened in 1990, when he attended one of Willa Shalit's "life casting" classes in Arizona. Shalit's work, which makes up much of the "Touchable Sculpture" exhibit at the Fullerton Museum Center through Feb. 11, impressed Butler in a huge way. "I just knew right off that that's what I had to do," the 49-year-old from Santa Ana recalls. "It was a feeling. . . . it was in my guts."
