Artist Michelle Stuart did small renderings of lunar surfaces in the 1960s and '70s, their intimate scale in contrast to the bigness of the space-travel efforts then under way. A few of Stuart's drawings are included in a small, smart show at Various Small Fire, "Life: On the Moon," in which past and present artists think about the fantasy and reality of outer space. It also includes smooth, shiny aluminum casts of moon craters made this year by Christopher Badger. 1212 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice; through Dec. 7. (310) 426-8040, vsf.la.
Wednesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Nov. 2. Continues through Dec. 7, 2013
