Dolla B is back, and you can count on 1 of 1 to bring you coverage of opening night!  Changing from her Hip-Hop rooted retrospective in October last year, Betsy “$B” Rudolph invaded Next Gallery on Friday April 24th with squirt guns, cherry bombs, and cans of whoop ass!  The show is titled “re-imagine imagine,” a reference to the 1971 single from John Lennon and probably the most colorful and fun-natured art show ever about war in modern times.

Fellow Next Gallery member Chris Buske shared the opening night with the show “3,000 Hippos,” a show that was equal parts visual arts and an initiative to raise money and awareness to protect the last 3,000 Pygmy Hippos.  The show is a mix of color and symmetry, creating a very enjoyable Warholian feel.

Both shows will be on display until May 10th; more information available at www.nextgallerydenver.com
