It's been a very busy Spring for Pam Nichols. She participated in "An Artist A Day" at Muse Art and Design in Portland and had work at Potter's Vineyard in Newberg over Memorial Day Weekend. Coming up in June, Pam will show work during First Thursday at Pulse Gallery at the corner of NW Broadway and Flanders in Portland and will participate in the Utah Arts Festival from June 20-23 in Salt Lake City, Utah http://www.uaf.org. She will also be the featured artist at District Gallery in Park City, Utah in July with an Artist Reception on July 5 www.districtartgallery.com.
