The androgynous, ghostlike figures in Richard Hawkins' new “Night Gallery” and “Rainbow Room” painting series at Richard Telles Fine Art stare out at you from frames or from windows that open onto night sky. The walls in Hawkins' paintings are all multicolored, with imprecise, speckled stripes of green, purple, pink and orange running down them. The tall haunted house, made from wood, cardboard and dollhouse parts and on a table in the middle of the gallery, is multicolored, too. Called Smut Palace, it has signs advertising adult entertainment on it but looks quaint and arcadelike rather than sinister. 7380 Beverly Blvd.; through June 22. (323) 965-5578,
