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.

Promotional Event Description

The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston showcases work by three Houston-based artists

The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston is pleased to present three simultaneous solo exhibitions by Houston-based artists Amy Blakemore, Thedra Cullar-Ledford, and Susie Rosmarin. The presentations are part of the museum's ongoing series Right Here, Right Now, which celebrates our region's vibrant creative community. Its second iteration showcases the work of three Houston-based artists with decades-long practices here. These artists create moodily poetic photographs, wry and confrontational figurative paintings, and vivid, optically luscious abstractions.
