If the souvenir shops along Hollywood Boulevard are any indication, Los Angeles is about miniature Oscar statuettes and Walk of Fame stars. But how does anyone who actually lives here encapsulate L.A. and why locals love it so? "People really want something fresh that represents Los Angeles that isn't just a 'I heart L.A.,' " said Sara Stein, one of the women behind Sisters of Los Angeles, a new line of modern gifts designed by architect Barbara Bestor in conjunction with product development specialist Karen Alweil.

What is the opposite of a blockbuster exhibition? The pomp-free micro-show inaugurating Tif Sigfrids' Hollywood gallery. It occupies a space roughly the size of a hazelnut. It takes but a nanosecond to see. This anti-spectacle is the work of Joe Sola, among the savviest of today's art-court jesters. The L.A.-based Sola has installed his show of six minuscule portrait paintings (each measuring less than one-tenth of an inch across) in a tiny, tiny box that nestles in gallerist Sigfrids' ear, its one open side facing out. She wears the exhibition during gallery hours, pulling her hair aside to make it visible.

To recap, the cellar-dwelling Major League Soccer team was sued Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court by two former coaches, Daniel Calichman and Theothoros Chronopoulos, who charged the team with racism, claiming they were...

Solas has been a virtual all-star ensemble since the Irish band was formed in the mid-'90s. With multi-instrumentalist Seamus Egan at the helm, the group has released a series of recordings offering an increasingly expanded view of traditional Celtic music.

"Solas," a film that attests to the timeless power of simplicity, marks the feature debut of writer-director Benito Zambrano, destined to take his place in the front ranks of Spanish filmmakers. "Solas," whose title refers to two women, a mother and daughter, both alone in their own way, is one of those quiet, unassuming little movies that sneaks up on you and knocks you for a loop. Ana Fernandez is the daughter, Maria, 35 and single.

The word is starting to get out about Solas, a group that is quickly becoming one of the most praised ensembles in Irish music. The five-piece unit, made up of Irish and American performers, played Thursday night at the Ash Grove before an overflow crowd that was eager to tap its feet with every reel and shed a tear with every ballad. Solas' most immediately noticeable quality was its remarkable virtuosity.

"I know that with the support of the staff currently in place, my transition to MLS will be that much easier.

In a 1506 drawing made as a study for an altarpiece in Venice, German artist Albrecht Dürer placed the dark pupil of an angel's right eye smack in the compositional center of the sheet. The eye of a mystical, mythological creature is the visual and conceptual pivot around which everything else turns, and it corresponds with the human instrument of visual perception. Tom LaDuke is up to something similar in "A Gothic Plot," one of seven paintings and five sculptures, all recent, in a terrific show that inaugurates Angles Gallery's new home.

Ea Sola left Vietnam as an adolescent war refugee in 1974 and returned 15 years later as an experienced European choreographer. She defines herself as French and Vietnamese, and her plotless hourlong essay in movement theater, "Drought and Rain Vol. 2" (2005), seemed torn between those two cultures in its performance Friday on the UCLA Live series in Royce Hall. Sola's stated intention was to depict the lingering effect of the war on a generation of Vietnamese born afterward.

The Sola Contemporary Dance Festival, celebrating its fourth year over the weekend at Torrance's James Armstrong Theatre, featured nine emerging choreographers and 40 dancers in a program of old and new works. The passing parade promised a potent palette but instead blurred into mild pleasantries, several bright voices notwithstanding.

Two distinct forms of Celtic music showed up at the Veterans Wadsworth Theater on Saturday in the performances of Solas and Natalie MacMaster. And each was well worth hearing. Solas, an all-star group featuring the multi-instrumental virtuosity of Seamus Egan, used its stunning skills to reinterpret a rich array of traditional music.

Besides the birth of Regina Klenjoski's son on Thursday, there was very little new to celebrate in the third annual Sola Contemporary Dance Festival, which took place over the weekend at James Armstrong Theatre in Torrance. Klenjoski's eponymous company produces the event that each year promises 10 "boundary-breaking" contemporary choreographers. Unfortunately, most of those boundaries had already been broken.

The Wall Street Journal once called the superb Irish American ensemble Solas "spirited and refreshingly risk-taking," but it's unlikely many Wall Street analysts would encourage the kind of dramatic change evident on their new album, "Edge of Silence."
