An Art Gallery Not-Art Sale


An Art Gallery Non-Art Sale – Last Event at 1+1=1 Gallery


Mark your calendars for August 4th and 5th for a fun garage-sale type of event complete with watermelon and other cold refreshments.

We’re offering a collection of things we no longer need or have room to store. We even have a few pieces of original artwork the gallery purchased or was given, that we just can’t keep for our home, so we’re letting these go to new homes at very low prices.


DATES: August 4th and 5th
WHAT TIME: 10am to 4pm
WHERE: 434 North Last Chance Gulch, Helena MT
WHAT: Refreshments, low prices on everything that’s left in the gallery, plus a giveaway pile.
