Recycling for the sake of art is nothing new, but the art in “The Loop,” a show at the Beacon Arts Building of work made of cast-off material, feels precise and intentional. It's not at all moralistic or about excess or detritus. Instead, it's about being responsible without being limited. William Ransom's experiments with wood shavings and clamps and Don Suggs' towers of colorful plastic are among the highlights. 808 N. La Brea Ave., Inglewood; through Jan. 15. (310) 419-4077, beaconartsbuilding.com.

Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: Dec. 3. Continues through Jan. 15, 2011
