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.

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:
