Pamela Nelson is known for using mixed-media to create abstract circular art.

Noted mixed-media artist Pamela Nelson will bring an exhibition of her work to the Justus Sundermann Gallery, opening this week with a reception on Thursday, Oct. 29.

“Pamela Nelson’s Circles of Life” is hosted by St. Matthew’s Cathedral Arts, which houses and manages the gallery at 5100 Ross Ave. The display of her colorful, abstract works can be seen through Nov. 22, free of charge.

Nelson’s work is both high profile and prolific, not only has she been showcased at more than 100 art institutions across the United States, her public art work can be seen in four local DART stations and at DFW airport. She has earned a slew of local and national accolades for her artwork, putting her in the national spotlight. In 2001, President George W. Bush appointed her to the U. S. Commission of Fine Arts in Washington D.C., a position she held for 10 years.

Attendees can meet Nelson and hear her discuss her work during the opening reception on Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

During the rest of the installation, the gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Sunday, and by appointment.
