Betsey Hurd and Dan McArdle
Featured Artists in TWO — Oct 20 through Nov 9, 2019
This month we are featuring Dan McArdle and Betsey Hurd in Gallery TWO. Both are Helena artists who have been showing at 1+1=1 Gallery for years. Dan’s strong relief sculptures are popular with art buyers and home owners across Montana and the Pacific Northwest. This time we have a raven, a bull elk, some pieces for mountain biking enthusiasts, a larger swallow piece and some of his famous trout streams. Betsey Hurd’s new work extends beyond the ceramic polymorphic fabulism pieces she has been concentrating on in the last few years. Whimsical yet profound, her figurative sculptures continue to delight and amuse.
See Mcardle’s and Hurd’s solo shows anytime we are open Tuesday through Saturday Oct 19th through November 9th. And, please do join us on the last weekend of the show to celebrate during the Downtown Helena Fall Art Walk on November 8th.*
*We invite you to join us on Friday evening, November 8th from 5 to 9pm during the Fall Art Walk. Here’s your chance to meet and talk with our solo artists, in a friendly — warm — and informal atmosphere. Dan McArdle will be doing a demo of his wood relief carving techniques during the Art Walk.
Bring your kids. Come say hi to our gallery dog, Shadow! Call 406-431-9931 for more information.
Gallery of Sneak Peeks:
TWO is a new concept for 1+1=1 in 2019
Changes at 1+1=1 Gallery
In early 2019, we renamed part of our Back Gallery and made it a place to celebrate and shine a spotlight on just two of our represented artists at a time. The space is now called “TWO.” Every artist we represent will have a chance to prominently show a body of their work once a year with a reception or open house. We’re very excited about this change to how we introduce you to our artists and their newest fabulous artwork. In addition to TWO, the other part of our Back Gallery continues to show a sampling of work by many of the artists represented by and associated with 1+1=1. Come in as often as you wish — you are likely to find new artworks every time you stop by.
