Art Jewelry and Ceramic Sculptures Featured in our October Window Exhibit
In the small street-facing gallery window this month is a two-person show by Caroline Davis and Sandi Bransford, both from the Puget Sound in Washington state. Davis brings considerable skill and creativity to her metalsmithing, creating elegant yet affordable and unique jewelry. Bransford uses ceramic, natural objects, paints and patinas to achieve her organic textural figures.
Caroline Davis’ handmade jewelry is one-of-a-kind. Her latest collection is made of Keum Boo 금부 (an ancient Korean technique of fusing a layer of gold onto silver.) Caroline’s elegant new work includes earrings and necklaces.
Sandi Bransford has shown in three exhibits at 1+1=1 and we know you will be delighted by her intriguing mixed media sculptures. Check out Sandi’s sculptures below and — if you are in Helena — see them in person up close at the gallery this month.

How can I purchase Caroline Davis‘ jewelry and Sandi Bransford‘s sculptures?
First, we want to make sure you know we have more of Caroline’s original handmade art jewelry in the gallery. And we always have a few of Sandi Bransford’s sculptures in our inventory. Just ask: Maureen or any of our gallery staff will show you to our downstairs rooms where we store hundreds of wonderful works of art. It’s always fun to discover artworks in our storage area!
Stop by 1+1=1 Gallery at 434 North Last Chance Gulch, to purchase the artwork in person whenever we are open, or buy directly from our Online Gallery Store. The exhibit window has a QR code you can use to go directly to the online catalog while you are standing right in front of the artworks. We deliver (in Helena) ship (almost anywhere in the world) or will hold your purchases for pick up in the gallery. If you want to try on the jewelry, come in during our gallery hours.

What is a Featured Window Artist?
We have rotating special solo or duo exhibits in our front windows. It’s our gift to the folks who frequent downtown Helena. The featured window artists’ exhibits are street-facing, lighted and visible 24/7. Anyone can enjoy the artwork anytime of day or night. Every month or so, we’ll have different artworks displayed in the two windows. This is in addition to the regular exhibits we always have inside the gallery on our main floor. Our Featured Window Artist displays are one way we have adapted to the pandemic. We hope many local Helenans will enjoy these tiny exhibits!
If you see something in any Featured Window Artist exhibit that you’d like to take home with you, just go to our Online Gallery Store to purchase. Or call 406-431-9931 to reserve the piece and we’ll make it happen for you.
