Crouching inside Skeith DeWine's art gallery in Santa Ana is a lot like falling down Alice's rabbit hole. Reality is warped. You're a giant in a tiny box. Located under a stairwell that leads to the basement of the Santora Arts Complex, the gallery was a utility room filled with trash, mice and wasps. Enter owner and local portrait painter DeWine, who revamped the space he has named "The Smallest Art Gallery in California."

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."

He has been mesmerized by the art of shaping the colorful, swirling forms for more than 16 years. While there has always been interest in the artistry of blown glass, Freund says, it is enjoying a welcome resurgence in popularity.

In the TV sitcom "Frasier," the chi-chi apartment of Dr. Frasier Crane would make the pages of Architectural Digest were it not for one piece of furniture: a 1970s recliner with avocado plaid upholstery. Though the chair is lashed together with duct tape and clashes dramatically with the contemporary decor, Frasier's father refuses to part with it. Old recliners are often the butt of jokes. They get no respect in the furniture world.

A thorough and deliberate person, King considered her various options--including opening a franchise--when the answer finally came to her one day while sitting in her living room, where she and her husband display their personal collection of African-American artwork.
