Girl power is riding high over at Contemporary Arts Museum Houston with “Right Here, Right Now: Houston, Volume 2,” with solo shows by Thedra Cullar-Ledford (who plans to bust out a breast-shaped piñata), Susie Rosmarin and Amy Blakemore. “There’s no dearth of talent in the city in contemporary art,” says Valerie Cassel Oliver, CAMH’s senior curator. “[It’s important to note] that we are still living in an environment in which women artists, who have been in the field for a period of time, have yet to be celebrated and given their due.” With three big names and decades of work under their respective belts, this triple-threat exhibit should change all that. CAMH has beaucoup events planned around this one, including open studios (it turns out adults like to craft too) and conversations with each curator/artist pair.

There’s an opening reception on August 19 from 6:30 to 9 p.m., with a piñata-smashing performance at 8 p.m. Continuing Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Thursdays 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturdays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Sundays noon to 6 p.m. Through November 27. 5216 Montrose. For information, call 713-284-8250 or visit camh.org. Free.
