Solo shows by three Houstonians make up “Right Here, Right Now: Houston, Volume 2,” with works by Thedra Cullar-Ledford, Susie Rosmarin and Amy Blakemore.

Valerie Cassel Oliver, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston's senior curator and curator of Rosmarin's “Lines and Grids: The Lost Decade and Beyond” exhibit, says that the roughly 25 works on display (drawings, paintings and sculpture), ranging from the late 1980s to 2015, show the evolution and trajectory of her work. Often categorized as Op Art, Rosmarin's pieces appeal to both arts aficionados and math junkies. “It's easy to think that a lot of her paintings are machine generated; they're so densely layered,” says Cassel Oliver. “She uses numeric formulas to create compositions.”

There's a conversation with Rosmarin and Cassel Oliver on October 27 at 6:30 p.m., and an open studio with activities inspired by the work of Rosmarin on October 1 from 2 to 4 p.m.
