RIDE by Pam Nichols at Art On Broadway Gallery
Pam Nichols is the featured artist for April at Art On Broadway. This show will include twenty-one 36 x 6 panels, each interpreting someones story about their bike ride. Pam was inspired to make these panels after listening to The Metal Cowboy aka Joe Kurmaskle talk about this journeys. He is a bestselling author, performer, bicycle travel adventurer and writer.
The exhibit opens April 4 and ends April 28, 2016. The public is invited to a reception with complimentary refreshments and wine on Saturday, April 9 from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
Pam shares, We are all on a journey, a ride. We ride bicycles for many reasons; to feel free, clear our minds, build strength, visit friends, commute, connect to the environment, help reduce waste or simply ride. As an artist, I see the road ahead for bigger challenges. There are many obstacles in my ride that may divert my vision or stop me cold. My spirits may dampen and my goals may be questioned, yet I accept these challenges and use them to push harder and to be stronger when I arrive. I know in every ride I may fall or get detoured. Instead of quitting, I learn from the pain and suffering, sometimes even reaching out for support, knowing deep down I have the power to achieve my dreams. Whatever course you are on, enjoy the ride.
Pam will donate 20% of her proceeds to IRONITOUT.org, an organization Joe started. She says, I love the passion Joe has for making a difference in the world. It all starts with one person taking action. I hope to support through my art sales his cause to make changes to better the lives of many!
