True-grit fairy tale 

Thursday, Jun 20 2013
Entering "Fleeting Diversions," Jasmine Little's current exhibition at Jancar Gallery, is like walking into a fairy tale, but the dense kind the Brothers Grimm originally wrote, where forests are haunted in stomach-churning ways, and betrayals and perversions abound. This doesn't make the fairy tale any less magical. Little's deep orange-brown trees and full leaves, lush moss and mushrooms that look like they have personalities and personal agendas are entirely enchanted. 961 Chung King Road, Chinatown; through July 13. (213) 259-3770, jancargallery.com.
Wednesdays-Saturdays. Starts: June 8. Continues through July 13, 2013
