Mark your calendar for Saturday, April 30th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm! It's been a creative winter. I've been working on new flowers, handmade greeting cards and beaded jewelry. I'm looking forward to seeing you at Leanne Pizio's Keep It Local Art Show. This is an annual event featuring 20+ artists, live music and a pet friendly environment. Bring six non-perishable items for admission to the Art Hunt! Donations go to The Servant Center's food pantry serving Guilford County. Please share this event and bring a friend. As always thank you for your support. #jnicholsart #keepitlocal
I just wanted to share my experience tonight. I am so glad I went to the Gallery 320 GSO meet and greet event. Since I moved away from Winston Salem I have not been able to be as active in the art scene there. I have felt disconnected and isolated because I was having difficulty meeting artists in Greensboro. But tonight, thanks to the vision of Kathy Brusnighan I was able to network with several artists and be a part of what I hope develops into something much needed in Greensboro. If you are a local artist and didn't hear about it or could not make it, please be sure to mark your calendar for the next event. Be a part of your art community! #jnicholsart
It's been a productive day in the studio and much needed. During the winter it was difficult to work on the carved pieces I love to create. Today I took advantage of the beautiful day, despite the wind which lessened as the day progressed. It's rare to have the entire day to work in the studio. I still continue to prefer to use hand tools. I do use power tools to cut the shapes from the left over wood I get from my dad. While I could use power tools to complete the work, I share the same love of hand tools as my dad. It does require more time but it connects me to the work I am creating in a way that I do not get from a power tool. I like the tool marks that are created much like when I worked in clay and my finger prints were left in the forms. I could sand them out, but instead I make them part of the design. It's one of the things that make the pieces uniquely my own.

I'm Jennifer Nichols, a mixed media artist from North Carolina. I enjoy capturing the essence of nature through a variety of materials. I incorporate found objects such as strainers and bottle caps into my work. I am drawn to these items but it is also important to me to do my part to protect our environment by keeping things out of the land fill.
