It was only fitting that one of the pioneers of the Crossroads Arts District would announce on a First Friday, May 3, that after two decades, his gallery would close. John O’Brien moved the Dolphin from the Crossroads to the West Bottoms five years ago. But now he says it’s time for something new.

Dolphin Gallery's John O'Brien had hinted about a change for months. But, now, it's official. Dolphin, the exhibition space and framing business in the West Bottoms, will close after its last show (slated to open May 17).

During this year's bitter and at times vitriolic election campaigns, political artwork has been on the rise across the nation. Two new politically charged exhibits at the Dolphin Gallery in the Crossroads Art District...use humor and satire to deflect some of the negativity.
