An Exhibit of Four Storytelling Artists' New Works
"When you’re speaking in the truest, most intimate voice about your life, you are speaking with the universal voice." ~ Cheryl Strayed
Please join us on August 21st from 10 to 4, to meet the four Helena artists featured in STORIES. Each of thes artists is a storyteller and an optimist. Each is a magical being who uses narrative in her art, to tell about the human condition through humor, strength, story and beauty. Each speaks through art-making, in a true voice and therefore a universal voice. We invite you to spend time viewing these stories during the exhibit, and hope that you will bring their meaningful ideas into your own lives and homes.
An Exhibit of Four Artists' Expressions of Light
How Do You Respond to Light?
How are we to understand the ephemeral ways in which light behaves, validating all of life? How might an artist pay proper homage to this vast and vital force? With wax and wood and paint and stitches. Light needs to be contained (but not caged.) Light needs context, it needs an outfit in the right size if we are to interact with it in such personal ways. 1+1=1 Gallery has invited four brilliant artists to respond to the theme of "light" and the resulting exhibition is truly profound. Visit the gallery during this luminous show and see new works by Tim Carney, Linda McCray, Pam Sullivan and Erika James.
Home, an exhibit of eleven artist's personal sense of place and home
Home is more than a place, it’s an atmosphere. At times, our sense of home is active and on the move, found only in our willingness to pursue the sweet breeze or sudden budburst. These moments of home, those we sometimes seek beyond our familiar walls and windows, are as true as the air is fresh. These rare encounters, when our precious, private inscape aligns with the ever assertive landscape, remind ing us that, in many ways, we are always home- that we each carry within us a golden ticket, an open invitation, a never worn out welcome to the hospitality of the heart.
In this exhibit, we shine the light on several artists who’ve gathered their own materials and traversed the tender territory of home for us to see. You’re invited to step into each piece as if you are an honored guest. Because you are. So please, by all means, make yourself at home.
