Julian St. John's portrait "Crucifix Dreamz" looks lonely and haunted, not unlike the circumstances that created it. The image, mostly in blue pen, features a bearded man with ringed, blood-shot eyes staring almost vacantly at the viewer. Over his white face, from the forehead down to the left cheek, are words that form a miniature poem: "Pain is my love shun'd by the herd like a bird sent down from above. " Across the nose is etched an affirmation: "I stay lookin up. " St. John, who will display 17 pieces Friday at the Laguna Gallery of Contemporary Art, drew "Crucifix Dreamz" in a park bathroom in Canoga Park, where he lived several months ago. It wasn't a case of homelessness due to poverty; St. John is the son of a champion boxer and an Emmy-winning actor.

Adam Silverman gets chummy with the earth when he works. The ceramist's contentment is obvious when his wet hands are immersed in clay, kneading, smoothing and glazing pots. But he almost didn't follow his instincts. With experience in architecture and the garment industry, Silverman decided to put his days as a hobby artist behind him and become a full-time potter in September 2002. He gave himself one year to work earnestly and discover if he could make a go of it. Fast forward 11 years, and he remarks that the experiment was a success, emboldening him to make the switch.
