Tilting, twirling, tipping and swaying, the Rube Goldberg devices produced by kinetic sculptor Pedro S. de Movellán suggest that a master alchemist is at work. While his transmutations result in elegant works of art rather than gold, he has been known to work with gold leaf — as well as mahogany, maple, polished aluminum and carbon fiber — to create pieces that would make a Swiss watchmaker proud. Now, his latest are on view at Sicardi Gallery in “Grace: A distillation of current kinetic works.” The paint is barely dry on 2017’s Outdoor Conical Leaf, coated with a fire-engine-red finish. Allison Ayers, a partner at the gallery who was traveling when she emailed us, told us that the 96-inch-by-75-inch behemoth is “one of his large outdoor pieces.”

An opening reception with the artist is 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday. Continuing 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays. March 30 through May 18. 1506 West Alabama. For information, call 713-529-1313 or visit sicardigallery.com. Free.
