Longtime Houston artist Vanessa Estrada brings her whimsical exhibit Just Kiddin Around to Koelsch Gallery, which shows kids engaging in the everyday pleasures of childhood. One shows a boy in shorts and cowboy boots with his hands on his hips, standing next to a rocking horse. Another depicts a young girl rather unsuccessfully blowing bubbles with her gum. And another shows a group of kids, burnt red from the sun, wearing nothing but smiles and identical rumpled white shorts. Estradas Just Kiddin Around is paired with Trey Speegles exhibit Outside the Lines. See both from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Through September 18. 703 Yale.

Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Aug. 14. Continues through Sept. 18, 2010
