From the vivid colored-glass delicacies of Kentuckian Stephen Rolfe Powell — opening Saturday, October 20 at Hooks-Epstein Gallery’s annual glass show — to the black-and-white allure of “Glass Graphica” headliners Moshe Bursuker and Miguel Unson at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft through mid-October, this month serves up a showcase for glorious glass. While their techniques and resulting creations are wildly disparate, all three glassmakers share a devotion to their silica material and an emphasis on perfection. Glass Group Show, opening Saturday, October 20, 6 to 8 pm (through November 21), at Hooks-Epstein Galleries, 2631 Colquitt St., 713.522.0718; hooksepsteingalleries.com. “Glass Graphica,” through October 14 at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, 4848 Main St., 713.529.4848; crafthouston.org.
