One room of Nick van Woert's exhibition "Labyrinth" at L&M Arts is dark and almost medieval, though in a hip, attractive way. Steel and iron shapes that look like dug-up artifacts are affixed to big, black discs. Then, in the gallery across the way, van Woert has built a much lighter, brighter maze of sorts. Found objects, such as discarded plastic tubing and a partly eaten hot dog in a bun, are enclosed in long, Plexiglas rectangles that have been stacked together to make walls along which you walk to the sculpture's center. It's design for the tasteful hoarder, gritty and sleek at the same time. 660 Venice Blvd., Venice; through Oct. 27. (310) 821-6400, lmgallery.com.
