*We invite you to join us on September 14 from 11 to 4pm (just drop in anytime) for an Open House at 1+1=1 Gallery. Here’s your chance to meet and talk with our TWO artists, in a friendly — warm — and informal atmosphere. Maureen Cole will do a demo showing some of the methods she uses for her tiny houses. Nancy Goughnour will be demonstrating her figurative sculpting techniques. Both artists are eager to talk with visitors about their inspirations and their artwork.

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.

BODY 2019 – Opening Reception

BODY 2019: our Fourth Annual Art Jewelry and Figurative Art Exhibit

Opening night of our BODY III on May 10th, was a smashing success. Check out our photos of the reception and plan to make it to our next opening reception on June 21st!

Opening Night or Quiet Gallery Day?

Do you like parties and groups? As always, if you like to be social and surrounded by friends new and old … if you like a good party with great food, wine and other beverages, and stimulating conversation … if you like to be part of the buzz and happenings of downtown Helena, then our opening receptions are a perfect way to spend a Friday evening. We greet everyone with equal enthusiasm and consider you to be part of the 1+1=1 family. Save the date – June 21st – for another fabulous opening party!

Or do you like quiet days better? If you are more of a calm-afternoon art lover … someone who likes to take your time viewing art in a peaceful yet visually energetic atmosphere … if you want to look at each artwork closely and carefully … if you like to browse art exhibits in the middle of the week or a lazy Saturday afternoon, then 1+1-1 Gallery is the perfect place to be. Come on in and find something wonderful, original and evocative next time you are in our neighborhood. Enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and good conversation (or peace and quiet) anytime.

Here’s our album of photos from May 10th:

BODY 2019 Opens May 10th

“BODY 2019″ opens May 10th with a fabulous & elegant opening reception

Models wearing the art … live music by the Amazing Graces … wine and appetizers … and most importantly, fabulous art jewelry (think Mother’s Day gifts) and figurative paintings and sculpture.

Opening night is May 10th and the exhibit runs through June 15th. 

Please join us Friday evening, May 10. Be the first to see and try on some of the art! We have incredible new jewelry pieces by Lori Blaylock, Bonnie Lambert, Paul Guillemette, SarahJess Swann, Judy Kline, Pyper Hugos and Dave Barnes.

And we welcome back sculptor, Nancy Goughnour and painter, Elizabeth Hughes Bass with their works on the walls of the gallery.

Wear something elegant and/or simple to show off the jewelry as you try it on. Let us help you find the perfect pair of earrings, a ring or necklace for the mother(s) in your life. Indulge yourself and add to your art collection with a new oil painting or sensual clay wall sculpture.

When: Friday May 10 from 5 to 8pm

Who: Because we must observe occupancy laws, during the Spring Art Walk, we will be limiting the number of visitors inside the gallery at any given time.

Without huge crowds in the gallery, you will be able to view and enjoy the art much better. Thanks for understanding.

BODY: 2nd Annual Art Jewelry and Figurative Art Show

BODY 2018: Annual Art Jewelry & Figurative Art Invitational

May 25 – June 23, 2018

Running from May 25 through June 23 this year, BODY will focus on one-of-a-kind art jewelry and unique contemporary figurative artworks (woodcuts, embroidery, oil paintings and ceramic vessels.) Please join us Friday evening, May 25th for an opening reception and to meet the artists.

Figurative art can often affirm us, push our buttons, inspire or disturb us. Figurative artists challenge us with their reflections on gender and human bodies to think about ourselves with awareness, tenderness, acceptance and even forgiveness. Ouida Touchon of New Mexico, Laurie Shaman of Illinois, Kate Fisher of New York, and Elizabeth Hughes Bass of Butte Montana, are the featured figurative artists this year.

Art jewelry sometimes pushes the boundaries of what we may think of as ornament for our bodies. We have invited jewelry artists whose studio jewelry is unique, contemporary or traditional, to be part of the show. Montana and national jewelry artists will be featured. We have art jewelers who work with fabric, felt, ribbon, paper and found objects, botanicals, silver, gold and other precious metals, stones, semi-precious stones, fossils, clay and natural objects, along with vintage and antique buttons and beads. You never know, we might even end up with some jewelry featuring tiny vintage toys. Come see the incredible variety and fabulousness!
