Maureen, Colleen and I have remarked on more than one occasion how good it is to have you and Tim on the Gulch, let alone in our lives as friends, and so for that too we will be giving thanks! Best to you both, Mike. ~Mike and Colleen Casey

There always seems to be something lively going on at this gallery, and much of it involves happy engaged faces, many of them fresh young faces. Maureen and Tim are welcoming, enthusiastic owners and hosts to all visitors. There are paintings prints and ceramic works and small sculptures in a variety of styles and there’s always something of special interest. They’ll be happy to tell you all about the artists and share artistic techniques. There’s a boom of creative energy happening in Helena again, and the 1+1=1 Gallery is part of it. Hooray! ~Suzy Holt

A little slice of the big city right here in Helena. Maureen and Tim do an excellent job balancing local artists and bringing in artists from other areas. Their displays are beautiful. The art is affordable. The space is wonderful! Make this a must stop whether you are a local and downtown often, or visiting the area and have an appreciation for fine art. You won’t be disappointed.~ Mary Ahmann Hibbard

I always thought art galleries were for New Yorker-types, not good ol’ country gals. But Maureen Shaughnessy has such a delightful gallery and is always so welcoming, you can’t stay away. Whether for an opening (and she keeps them coming) or just to drop by as I walk through downtown, there is always a hug and smile. And the art itself? Fantastic! I’ve even purchased a couple of pieces and plan on collecting more! ~ Judy Hudgins

I LOVE the uniqueness of 1+1=1 Gallery! From the whimsical front windows through the stunning galleries, each new show is a visual adventure. In addition to Maureen Shaughnessy’s exciting mixed media work and Tim Carney’s gorgeous hand crafted furniture, Maureen shares her keen eye for appealing, diverse, affordable work by carefully chosen emerging artists. I try not to miss each new show. ~Judy Kline

Love this gallery. Whether it’s to see a new exhibit, coming for a performance or even just a quick pop in to see what’s new, I’m always struck by how welcome I feel. Great atmosphere. I also enjoy the variety of local artists mixed with those from other areas. Definitely something to add to your list of places to stop in and check out in downtown Helena. ~April Lemieux

“I love everything 1+1=1 has to offer the Helena community, and especially love that the ages served are widespread. With as many places we are seeing cut funding for the arts, it is nice to have an advocate right here at home. It seems the artists, participants, and patrons of the gallery’s classes, receptions, and openings are all welcomed into a family. My toddler is welcome to look and develop his own tastes and interests just as equally as a senior citizen. There is nothing I DON’T like about 1+1=1, and I highly recommend it to anyone who will listen.” ~Whitney Dorr
