Harold B. Nelson had a smile on his face. He was seated at the folding table temporarily serving as his desk in the bare sunlit office. On the table lay a pair of scissors and a catalogue of office products. Directly opposite him, a large picture window afforded a breezy view of the Pacific Ocean lined with palm trees. "I love this place," said Nelson, a crisp, neatly dressed, balding 41-year-old, gazing wistfully out the window. "It's a very diverse community and I find that diversity challenging and appealing."

IT may look like a lost Picasso with a touch of Gustav Klimt, but "Where From My Love" is an even more striking fusion of art and craft. Doris Hall's 3-by-5-foot enameled panel, at right, made in 1957 from powdered glass fused to steel at 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit, is one of 200 pieces in "Painting With Fire: Masters of Enameling in America 1930-1980" on display at the Long Beach Museum of Art through Aug. 19. The show, curated by Bernard N. Jazzar and Harold B.

As a leading contemporary ceramic artist, Elsa Rady created elegantly simple porcelain vessels and often controlled how they were presented by bolting the refined pieces into place. "She really forged her own path and became a force," said Jo Lauria, an independent curator who included Rady's work in "Craft in America," a national touring show that debuted in 2007. "Calculating the experience of the viewer ? I don't know of any other artist who is her equal in that," Lauria said.

Franklin Sirmans occupies a conspicuously neat space in a complex of glass-front offices at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The new head of LACMA's contemporary art department arrived in January with plenty of ideas, but it takes time to pile up the mountains of books and files that overwhelm many of his colleagues. Around the corner, Christine Y. Kim has settled in, but just barely. She joined the museum's staff last September as associate curator of contemporary art. And down the hall, another notably uncluttered office belongs to Britt Salvesen, who came aboard in October as chief of two departments: photography, and prints and drawings.

A new city audit released this week raises thorny questions about management of the Long Beach Museum of Art, including what it calls the improper spending of $1.6 million in restricted funds earmarked to pay off bonds for the museum's $6.5-million expansion. A second portion of the audit, due next month, is expected to document that some works of art are missing from the 3,000-piece collection of the city-owned museum just east of downtown Long Beach.

The icons of modern art tend to be big, muscular paintings--Picasso's "Les Demoiselles d'Avignon," Duchamp's "Nude Descending a Staircase," Leger's "The Mechanic," Mondrian's "Broadway Boogie Woogie." Harold B. Nelson, director of the Long Beach Museum of Art, had something different in mind when he organized the latest exhibition, "Icons for a New Era: The Spiritual Abstractions of Alexej Jawlensky."

Harold B. Nelson, director of the Long Beach Museum of Art, had long wanted to put together an exhibition to tell the story of two prominent women and their faith in the early work of brothers Charles and Henry Greene, venerable names in the 20th century Craftsman movement and shapers of architecture in Southern California. But it took what some preservationists considered a near-disaster to make "Greene & Greene in Long Beach," on view at the museum through Oct. 31, a reality.
