Art & Museum Exhibits
Feb 01 | 6:00 pm | Balefire Goods
For the month of February, Balefire Goods welcomes local artist Brad Jeske for an exhibit of his abstract oil paintings Brad Jeske is a Denver based painter that uses oil painting as his principal medium of expression. He received art instruction at the Art Student’s league in New York and Indiana State University in Evansville where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. His eclectic style spans both organic and geometric compositions but, in the main, he is inspired by forms found in nature: the manifold shapes of plants and insects and bones and landscape. Brad studies these forms in nature with many sketches and drawings in order to assimilate them into his imagination. Familiarity with nature’s architecture provides a basis for reinvention in many of his paintings. Brad strives for harmony in terms of color and composition and aims to conjure original or alien scenes that provide an exciting sense of discovery. Join us for drinks, snacks, and a wonderful evening celebrating local art. In addition to our opening, Olde Town Arvada is a great destination for First Friday with openings at Vouna, The Cereal Box, Hunter Bay Coffee Roasters, Gallery 1874, Light Rail Gallery, Grand Lake Brewing, Arvada Ceramic Arts Guild, New Image, and more.

Eyes On: Julie Buffalohead will showcase new work by the Minnesota-based artist, who is a citizen of the Ponca Tribe of Oklahoma. Buffalohead uses metaphors, iconography, and storytelling narratives in her artwork to describe emotional and subversive American Indian cultural experiences, and often analyzes the commercialization of American Indian cultures.
Buffalohead frequently includes animals as subjects, and her eclectic palette and whimsical subjects evoke a childlike innocence. While she works in a variety of mediums, including painting, printmaking, drawing, illustration, bookmaking, and sculpture, this exhibition will feature a new series of works on canvas that explore her own life experiences, as well as ancestral knowledge.

Thru Feb 16 | 1 pm - 4 pm | Niza Knoll Gallery LLC
As our nation’s leadership shifts its environmental priorities from protection to exploitation, it is critical, now more than ever, for citizens to appreciate and explore the treasured landscapes that have inspired inhabitants of our continent for centuries. To that end, artist Topher Straus chose to use the vast National Park system, established 150 years ago, as a blueprint for his unconventional representational landscapes featured in a new exhibit at Niza Knoll Gallery entitled “The Parks”.
Straus highlights popular vistas through spectacular 30” x 60” paintings on metal with the goal of providing a personal and rich experience for the viewer, much like when visiting the parks themselves. The show runs January 11 through February 16, 2019 at 915 Santa Fe Drive with the public invited to view and purchase work at an Artist’s reception during the Third Friday Art Walk on January 18, 5-8 pm and during regular gallery Winter hours, Wednesday through Saturday 1-4 pm, First and Third Friday 4-8 pm and by appointment.

It includes visitor favorites such as a four-faced Hamat's Mask, Deborah Butterfield’s horse sculptures, artworks by Frederic Remington and Georgia O’Keeffe, as well as rarely seen works.

There's a place from which nothing escapes, not even light, where time and space literally come to end. It's at this point, inside this fantastic riddle, that black holes exert their sway over the cosmos … and our imaginations.
In this Museum-produced show, zip through other-worldly wormholes, experience the creation of the Milky Way Galaxy, and witness the violent death of a star and subsequent birth of a black hole. Mathematical equations, cutting-edge science, and Einstein's theories fill in holes along the way, providing the most complete picture yet on this mysterious phenomenon. Can you feel the pull?

Voodoo’s resident short-form improv show!

Feb 01 | 10:00 pm | VooDoo Comedy Playhouse
HIP HOP!!! FREESTYLE!!! MADNE$$!!!
Y’all know what it is!!! Rapscallions has been doing its thing at Voodoo for a little over a year now, and I am very proud of how much the team has grown in that relatively short amount of time. What started as a niche/specialty show with around six members has grown into a weekly staple at Voodoo with its own dedicated fanbase and over 20 members on roster (if you include past performers who have since moved but could always come back as guests). We were accepted into the New York Musical Improv Festival last year, and we are currently getting ready to submit to several other festivals over the summer and fall (crossing our fingers for festivals in LA and New Orleans). Members of the team (including myself) have been recognized for doing the show outside of Voodoo, which can only be good news for the Playhouse itself. None of this would have been possible without the incredible amount of support we’ve received from Voodoo and its staff, and I sincerely thank you forever for letting this show exist. Rapscallions has been able to reach so many people, creating an outlet for veterans to shine and an accepting environment for newcomers to discover both comedy and hip-hop. This show has a strong foundation beneath it, and now is the time to build and expand upon it. We have been steadily increasing our social media presence, and we are always on the lookout for random opportunities to perform both in and out of state. Voodoo is our home, and we want that brand, along with the Rapscallions name, to start getting major recognition around Denver and beyond. Considering what we were able to do in year one, I have no doubt that if this show is allowed to go on with continued support from Voodoo that we can achieve that goal and more. Comedy, culture, music, energy, HIP HOP, FREESTYLE, MADNE$$!!! Thank you for your consideration.

Fans of Drunk History and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare, where an entirely serious Shakespeare play is performed with one entirely inebriated cast member. For the last eight years, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the U.K., and the cast is now bringing the good time to Austin. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, this show enjoyed sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, where a cast member drinks beer, wine and whiskey on stage, drunkenly sings the Dawson's Creektheme song and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bares a nipple or two. Brush up on your Bard knowledge and head over to Spider House for a drunken twist on Romeo and Juliet, because this is Shakespeare as you never knew you wanted to see him before.

Nestled in the Catskills—1962’s land of dirty dancing and Borscht Belt comedy—an inconspicuous bungalow colony catered to a very special clientele: heterosexual men who delighted in dressing and acting as women. These white-collar professionals would discreetly escape their families to spend the weekends safely inhabiting their chosen female alter-egos. But given the opportunity to share their secret lives with the world, the members of this sorority had to decide whether the freedom gained by openness was worth the risk of personal ruin. Based on real events and infused with Fierstein’s (La Cage aux Folles, Newsies and Kinky Boots) trademark wit, this moving, insightful, and delightfully entertaining work offers a glimpse into the lives of a group of “self-made women” as they search for acceptance and happiness in their very own Garden of Eden.

The longest running off-Broadway revue in history has been revised for the 21st century! This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum known as 'the relationship.' Act I explores the journey from dating and waiting to love and marriage, while Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set. This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, to those who have dared to ask, 'Say, what are you doing Saturday night?' The 2018 version features two new songs, revised lyrics and dialogue throughout the show to reflect dating in modern times.

The squabbling editorial assistants at one of New York’s most prestigious magazines are all chasing the same dream: a starry life of letters and a book deal before they turn 30. When an ordinary day at the office suddenly becomes a living nightmare, two survivors transform the experience into career-making stories.

As the years spin backwards, a complex web of secrets about the trio emerges and calls into question the nature of their intimacy -- as friends, as partners, as spouses.

In fact, everyone's a suspect ... including you! The event starts out with a reception featuring passed hors d'oeuvres, followed by the meal, which includes salad, choice of entree and dessert. Between courses you can expect plenty of murder, mayhem and hidden clues coming to light as you puzzle through the crime. The top sleuth even wins a prize package at the end of the evening -- not to mention serious bragging rights.

It is rare to find a vocal artist who can maneuver between genres while maintaining a genuine authenticity of each and the integrity of her own voice. Spanning from classical to gospel to jazz through to rock, blues, pop, funk and soul, JoFoKe (bka Joslyn Ford-Keel) is such a vocalist who does this with ease. Fabled to have been born with microphone in-hand on a snowy Denver evening, she was raised engrossed in performing and worship artistry by her classically trained, jazz pianist father, choir director mother and all around artsy blended family. This eclectic artist grew up active in music, theater and dance but, perhaps the greatest impressions were left when she was given a chance to “sit-in” with her family and friends’ bands, vocal groups and orchestras. JoFoKe (pronounced: Joh-Foh-Kee) emerged on the professional Colorado music scene as a teen and, because of her sophisticated musical ear, attention to detail, and ability to effectively adapt her sound to most styles of music, she was quickly dubbed a “chameleon”. Having spent nearly 20 years as a session vocalist, artists consultant, clinician and in other support capacities within the music industry, JoFoKe is currently a highly sought after singer, songwriter, arranger and vocal producer.
