Press Here: a Printmakers Showcase is a gorgeous exhibit with original artwork by 10 printmakers. We have had so many folks asking about the process, after seeing the monoprint, etchings, woodcuts and collagraphs in person, that we decided to have a demonstration in the art studio at the back of the exhibit space.
So … if you are in Helena on Saturday morning, September 29, we have a fun, educational and magical printmaking demo for you!
Stop by Maureen Shaughnessy‘s art studio at 434 North Last Chance Gulch in Helena (back of gallery) to learn something about her drypoint and collagraph printmaking process.
Maureen will be working on a new drypoint etching plate and printing some monoprint/collagraphs on her press. It’s always fascinating to see this magical process as it’s happening. Ask questions. Observe. Drop in for as short or long a time as you wish. It’s all free.
After you watch the demo, head out to our exhibit space to compare what you see in the studio to the diverse prints on the walls by 10 different artists. Our current show, Press Here: a Printmakers Showcase is on view until October 13.

“PRESS HERE: Printmakers’ Showcase” starts September 7th with an opening reception
We are truly looking forward to our first exhibit of the fall, PRESS HERE. Opening night will be September 7th, when you can be the first to see the prints coming out of the studios of artists who work at Pratt Institute of Arts, and the local studios of Carol Montgomery and Maureen Shaughnessy. We are excited to introduce our art buyers and art lovers to something different — the printmakers who live and work in Seattle bring a fresh perspective to what we are all used to out here in Montana. Most of the Seattle printmakers work in the print studio at Pratt Fine Arts, and show in one or more Seattle galleries. We are honored to have them at 1+1=1 in Helena! As well, Carol and Maureen have been hard at work creating new linocuts, monoprints and collagraphs for the show. Expect to be surprised, delighted and moved by this collection of printmakers’ artworks.
What: new exhibit, “PRESS HERE”
When: Friday Sep. 7 from 5 to 8pm
Who: Our opening events are for everyone, kids too — and it’s free
Where: 1+1=1 Gallery is located at 434 North Last Chance Gulch in Helena, Montana.
