“Ragpicker,” artist Steve Roden's new show at Susanne Vielmetter Projects, includes a fantastic suite of smallish drawings. They're in the second gallery, on the westernmost wall. Some are long, some square; they're all surreal and precious-feeling despite the fact that their shapes are systematic. The one dominated by the symmetrical, pea-green diamond has another delicate, rectangular graphite drawing attached to its center and baby-blue triangles fading out as their tips reach toward the drawing's four corners. 6006 Washington Blvd., Culver City; through Oct. 19. (310) 837-2117, vielmetter.com.

Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Sept. 14. Continues through Oct. 19, 2013
