TWO is a new concept for 1+1=1 this year.

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.

Artists in TWO, April 13 – 26

Open House Saturday April 20th to celebrate Bonnie Lambert & Erika James

You are invited to join us at 1+1=1 Gallery anytime during the day from 11 to 4, to meet Bonnie Lambert and enjoy her fabulous art jewelry along with a second solo show by Erika James of Portland, Oregon. This month, from April 13 through 26, we are featuring necklaces by Bonnie Lambert and atmospheric encaustic paintings by Erika James.

Helena artist, Bonnie Lambert is known for her unique art-jewelry as well as her constructed large-scale photographs. In TWO this month, Bonnie is displaying her necklaces made from found objects, natural materials such as gourds, oak galls and minerals with semi-precious stones, one-off beads, chocolate and wine foils and vintage silks. Erika James, of Portland, Oregon, makes moody abstract landscapes with encaustic wax. You must see her Columbia Gorge, Pacific beaches and mountain lakes up close and personal to truly get the experience of her encaustic paintings. We are absolutely delighted to have these two on our artist roster and hope you will be too, when you see their new work.

 

We invite you to join us on April 20th from 11 to 4pm (just drop in anytime) for an Open House at 1+1=1 Gallery!

We want to offer our Helena visitors a chance to meet and talk with our TWO artists, in a friendly — warm — and calm atmosphere. Bonnie Lambert will be at the gallery on April 20, to show some of her materials and converse informally about her inspirations for art jewelry. Get inspired by the way she collects objects that normally would not be used in wearable-art, on her travels and gathering trips. Ask questions, examine her necklaces and find the perfect gift for a stylish friend, spouse or parent!

Come on downtown Saturday, April 20, anytime between 11 and 4

Join us for goodies and beverages during our Open House. Hot Cross Buns, Maureen’s own Savory Strata, Peach Mimosas, French press coffee and tea all morning until 1 or 2pm. Wine and artsy grazing boards from 2 to 4. What’s not to love about our open houses? It’s casual. Fun. Engaging. Delicious. Educational. And … a great place to find a Mother’s Day gift a little ahead of time!

It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time by Peter Shaughnessy

Elements Opens August 12

Elizabeth Hughes Bass Painting

Our next exhibit at 1+1=1 Gallery is “Elements: Water Earth Air Fire,” featuring seven artists from Montana, and British Columbia. The work of these artists fits harmoniously into our theme of the natural elements of which all things are made. Each artist has been working on pieces for this show that embody one or more of the elements in some way. Some pieces have a elemental theme, others by the nature of the medium, represent an element such as clay/fire; wood/earth.

WATER

Tim Carney, a master woodworker and artist, creates one-of-a-kind furniture that reminds us of a swift river current, a leaf floating on a stream, ocean waves or steam rising from a caldera. His signature “urban organic”style looks great in an elegant lodge, a midcentury modern home or an urban loft.

EARTH

John Andrew makes earth vessels from local hardwood trees that have been scarred by beetles, fungi and other natural forces. Peter Shaughnessy is inspired by his love of the environment and uses various woods, bone and glass in his philosophical biomorphic sculptures.

AIR

Elizabeth Hughes Bass‘ oil paintings in this body of work, depict luminous skies, approaching storms and the color of the air and land with luscious palette knife and brush strokes.

FIRE

Gregg Edelen’s raku and wood-fired vessels are simple organic reminders to live with beauty everyday. With bodies covered in human faces and life-size heads, Susan Mattson’s birds, mammals and human figures are provocative and strangely compelling. Trudy Skari tells visual stories and makes ceramic poetry with her delightful animal sculptures and wall pieces.
