May 6th First Friday

Downtown Helena parties every first Friday of the month

Here we are again getting ready for another First Friday in downtown Helena. For almost two years now, all of us downtown locally owned businesses have been staying open and offering fun events every First Friday of the month. In the beginning, few people ventured downtown to browse the businesses that were open later in the evening, mostly because they didn’t know about it. Now that word has spread about this fun evening activity, we have more and more people coming to the gallery and I’m sure, stopping by the other businesses.

This month’s First Friday is May 6th. What’s special at 1+1=1 Gallery?

I’m going to do an art demonstration in my studio (in the back of the gallery) for anyone interested in seeing one of the printmaking processes I used in the current exhibit, One-Off. In addition to the demo, we’ll have cookies and punch — and of course, you can come see the fabulous artwork in the gallery after your working hours.

  • When: Friday, May 6, 2016
  • Time: 5 to 8:30pm
  • Where: 1+1=1 Gallery 434 North Last Chance Gulch
  • Art Demo (free) 6 to 7:30pm in the studio (go all the way to the back of the gallery)

I encourage you to make it a date night. Have dinner at one of downtown’s great restaurants, window shop and go into the open businesses. We can’t make downtown such a vibrant, fun place to visit without you! See you at the gallery and thank you, as always, for your support. ~ Maureen and Tim


Below are a few examples of monoprints I’ve made. I’ll be demonstrating one of my methods for getting some of these textures and images.
