For its final show, the walls of Rice University Art Gallery have been painted black, as if the gallery is shrouded in mourning. “Sol LeWitt: Glossy and Flat Black Squares” is a reinstallation of the conceptual art pioneer’s work created specifically for the gallery and shown in 1997. Black paint with either a flat or a gloss finish is brushed in rectangles and squares on the gallery’s three 16-foot-high sheet-rock walls. These vast planes of blackness overwhelm the viewer, all at a scale much larger than human; standing in front of them, you are encompassed by their darkness. “Glossy and Flat Black Squares” is a quiet and elegant ending for a space that has hosted such a dynamic range of work.

11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday. Continuing 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays; 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursdays; noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. February 9 through May 14. 6100 Main. For information, call 713?348?6069 or visit ricegallery.org. Free.
