“Look Closely” Exhibition Opening Reception

Thank you to every one who came Friday night — in spite of the snow — to celebrate the opening of Jan Novy’s art exhibition. We were truly blown away by the number of Helena folks who showed up. And what a fun party it was! Check out some of the pics from the reception (keep scrolling).

If you’re reading this and you were at the reception Friday night, what did you like best?

Was it gathering with so many friends? Seeing Jan’s artwork? The Swedish Sunrise cocktail? The noise (we certainly couldn’t hear the music, heh)? How about the appetizers? The 100s of smiles and all that laughter? Or just that 1+1=1 was open for an evening event again (after all these months)?

1+1=1 was truly so packed with bodies Friday night, we know there wasn’t much room to see Jan’s delicate paintings and drawings. We hope you come back to look more closely before the show comes down. We’re open Tuesday through Friday 11 to 5 and Saturdays 11 to 4. Call Maureen if you’d like to visit the show at a different time. We are happy to make special arrangements.

“Look Closely: a retrospective of art by Jan Novy” will be on the gallery walls through Saturday, March 25th

We’d love to see you back on a quieter day, looking at her exquisite miniatures, and perhaps buying a piece or two. Even if you’re not in a position to take home one of these lovely little paintings, stop by to marvel at Novy’s sense of scale, detail, order and color. It’s a lovely exhibition!

Thanks to all who purchased a piece of Novy’s artwork. There are still many tiny paintings and drawings available and we’d love to find homes for every single piece! Novy’s framed miniatures make wonderful gifts. They are gorgeous in person – or shop online. We are happy to ship anywhere in the continental US.

Last but not least

Jerry Cooper brought me this cool photograph he’d taken back in 2000 — of Jan and Paul having breakfast at the No Sweat Cafe´ — I love it and think you will too.
