Contemporary Wood is our biennial invitational woodworking exhibit. This year’s show features new work by three of the finest woodworkers in Montana: Tim J. Carney, Boyd Carson and Tom Robinson.
Here's your last chance to snag a gorgeous piece of ceramic sculpture, functional pottery, woodcut or painting collected by the late Gloria Hermanson. From March 1 - 31, 2023 we are reducing the price by 40% (or best offer) of all remaining art from her diverse collection of mostly Montana artists' works. Do we have your interest? See below for how to buy art you'll enjoy for a lifetime.
Gloria's taste ran from legacy early Archie Bray Foundation artists such as Frances Senska, Kurt Weiser and David Shaner -- to other Montana artists like Jessie Wilbur, Richard Swanson, George McCauley and Russell Chatham. Her collection spans a range of artworks by emerging, mid-career and internationally known artists working in ceramics, works-on-paper and painting.
Hermanson's family trusted 1+1=1 Gallery with the exhibition and sale of Gloria's art collection and we have found wonderful new homes for ALMOST everything. We would like to be able to send every last artwork home with someone who will enjoy, savor and even be moved by it.
For only the month of March, 2023, all remaining artworks in this collection are available at a 40% discount or even better for you -- make us an offer. We'd truly like to help Gloria's family pass along every item in their mother's collection to someone else.
If you choose to purchase a piece at the 40% DISCOUNT in March 2023 all you have to do is click on the artwork, click the "PURCHASE" button and fill out the super easy email form that pop up. We'll make up an invoice for you, with shipping if appropriate.
If you wish to make an OFFER on a piece during the month of March 2023, click on the artwork, click the "INQUIRE" button and make us a reasonable offer on the popup email form. We'll get back to you pronto!
We ship anywhere in the continental USA. Shipping costs will be calculated and added to the invoice. You may also choose to come in person to the gallery to receive your purchase. Questions? Email us or call 406-431-9931. Thank you for your interest!
NOTE: the 40% or best offer sale is exclusively available online from March 1 through 31st, 2023. After that we'll send the remaining pieces back to the family.
Look Closely: a Retrospective of Art by Jan Novy
MARCH 4 THROUGH 25, 2023
To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower
Hold Infinity in the Palm of your Hand
And Eternity in an Hour
Jan Novy (1952-2019) looked at the world closely. Meticulously. Mindfully. 1+1=1 Gallery presents LOOK CLOSELY, an exhibit of paintings Novy made for herself but that absolutely need to be shared. This exhibit celebrates the intimate and sensitive watercolors and colored pencil, graphite drawings she kept hidden in her sketchbooks and tucked away under piles of color swatches and studies.
In her artist statement, Novy wrote, “Fonts and writing systems that might have been, occupied and fascinated me. That was my starting point for painting. My art became more non-representational over the years. I favor patterns and grids and colors that point (my partner says) to colored patterns and grids. You need to understand that the photos taken during our honeymoon show street grates in Paris, rows of cabbages near Prague, and avenues of standing stones in Scotland.”
Have fun browsing Novy’s tiny paintings and drawings, and make sure to click on the photos to enlarge so you can truly LOOK CLOSELY online, too! We are happy to give you more information about any of the pieces. You can make a purchase inquiry and we will invoice you online, or put a red dot on the piece so you can come in to the gallery to pick it up. We ship anywhere in the continental US.
