Several years ago, Pasadena artist Sarah Seager "erased" all her old paintings by painting them white. As she remarked at her Tuesday noon gallery talk at Newport Harbor Art Museum, the gesture was less about the paintings themselves than "the action of painting and covering up." Speaking in a quiet, reflective way, the 34-year-old artist explained that she liked the "usefulness" of paint for covering a surface, but she also realized how impossible it was to do the job thoroughly.

Los Angeles and its artists are being showcased at two Claremont colleges. Sharon Ryan and Sarah Seager are seen separately in the galleries of Claremont Graduate University. "L.A. Stories: Engaging the City" occupies Pomona College's Montgomery Gallery. The latter, a complex theme show curated by Rebecca McGrew, presents nine rather dystopian views of life in the central city.

"Loaded" is a group show with a big, slippery theme: "The placement of the body in social, psychological, theoretical and aestheticized ways." It takes a while to figure out how these ideas apply to each of the disparate objects in the show, but having the theme as a guide proves helpful in coming to grips with some of the odder pieces.

Scientists detected traces of the first organic molecules in the atmosphere of a planet orbiting a far-off star, a development that may lead to the ability to uncover the signatures of life on worlds outside our solar system. Using the Hubble Space Telescope's infrared camera, a team led by researchers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Canada Flintridge found methane and water in the atmosphere of a planet orbiting a star roughly 63 light-years away.

A large-scale sculpture with an equally large-scale title--Nancy Rubins' 2001 work "Chas' Stainless Steel, Mark Thompson's Airplane Parts, About 1000 Pounds of Stainless Steel Wire and Gagosian's Beverly Hills Space," fashioned from used airplane parts--is among the artworks acquired through gifts and purchases by the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art in 2001.

Certain devices, at certain times, become so frequently used by artists, even of widely divergent stripes, that you wish a moratorium could be invoked to cease the numbing proliferation. The use of a big, wide, heavy or otherwise emphatic frame is one such familiar motif, which characterized the return to prominence of painting in the 1980s. The bulky frame stood in sharp contrast to the frameless canvases so common to postwar art.

Donald Krieger's sprawling, four-gallery installation at the Santa Monica Museum of Art begins with cogent ideas about film technology but loses its focus and energy well before you finish listening to its soundtracks, watching its projections, bending over its vitrines, wandering around its sets and reading its long, explanatory wall labels.

Cirrus Editions is one among the triumvirate of workshops that has made Los Angeles an unusually important center for printmaking in the past 40 years. In fact, the story of the development of a thriving American market for contemporary prints, which is relatively recent, cannot be told without it. "Made in L.A.: The Prints of Cirrus Editions" is a worthwhile exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art that celebrates the workshop's venerable history.
