To honor a condition of a Houston Arts Alliance grant artist Michael Crowder received — that he exhibit his recent work by year's end — Crowder and gallerist Wade Wilson had to scramble to squeeze a short-lived exhibit into Wilson's already full roster.

But the result, L'heure bleue, looks like anything but a rush job. Crowder's masterful trompe l'oeil glass sculptures like Air amusé (Amused Air), are witty, lovingly crafted homages to such modernist influences as Marcel Duchamp and Constantin Brancusi. And the exhibit's drop-dead gorgeous staging draws on Crowder's day job as a preparator at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

This must-see show is up through Saturday at Wade Wilson Art, 4411 Montrose, Suite 200; 713-521-2977.
