A group of ceramic sculptures in Zachary Leener's new show at Tif Sigfrids' gallery stands on these funny forms that look like eyeless, mouthless Smurf heads. Each sculpture has two of the heads, out of which grow glazed vertical cylinders. Another horizontal cylinder lies across the top, and various twisty or bulbous add-ons distinguish one sculpture from another. They're weird, charming, creaturelike objects that you want to get close to but don't overthink. 1507 Wilcox Ave., Hlywd.; through May 24. (323) 907-9200, tifsigfrids.com.
Wednesdays-Saturdays. Starts: April 12. Continues through May 24, 2014
