Downtown Helena Spring Art Walk May 5th

Looking for something fun, social — and cultured — to do this weekend?

Look no further than Downtown Helena, Montana on Friday May 5th! Last Chance Gulch and side streets, along with the Great Northern part of town will be hoppin’ with special art shows, friends and neighbors, music, food, beverages, discounts and activities. Spread your night out and visit as many or as few venues as you like. Bring the kiddos. Bring a date! Bring your best friend and soak up the culture.

Most of the businesses downtown will be open late on Friday night from 5 to 9pm and will feature at least one local artist displaying their artworks. Some have groups of artists, like the Archie Bray at Montana Book & Toy company or the Clay Arts Guild at Mosaic Architecture on the 400 block. Helena’s Spring Art Walk is a great way to find out who’s making art in our town, get together with friends and family for a fun few hours.

1+1=1 Gallery will feature one of our favorite artists, Dan McArdle

Dan will demonstrate his unique carving technique in the Front Gallery. Come see how he uses his easel-table-contraption to carve large flat relief sculptures.  and the Back Gallery will have art by the other talented artists represented by 1+1.



We just received a package of fabulous new porcelain cups from Sarah Magar who is living on Vancouver Island, BC. She has been one of our most popular artists since we opened the gallery and we know you’re going to love her latest artwork. She has continued to grow and evolve her style and these are the best ever!

We only have 9 cups by Sarah. Come early in the evening if you want to take one home. They’ll go fast.

There is always great food and drink during 1+1=1 events. See you Friday evening!

Opening Reception for B&W+1

Thank you to everyone who came out last night for our opening night of B&W+1. We were pleasantly surprised to have such a large crowd for the talks and throughout the evening. Really appreciate the support of our community –and for our artists! It was a wonderful evening.

Patty Ceglio and Maureen Cole gave interesting talks about their processes, backgrounds and inspiration. They were interviewed and filmed earlier on Friday, by Jeanie MacLean of HCTV and will be featured in one of Jeanie’s documentary-style programs on Studio Tour. I’ll make a blog post when I have times and dates for the broadcasts.

If you missed the opening, not to worry — the exhibit will be up until July 19th. We welcome you to browse and enjoy the art anytime we’re open. Monday through Saturday 10 to 6.
