From May 23rd to September 4th, two of Nicole’s new collages were on view in Collage: Hot and Ready at A R E A at The Yard in Back Bay, Boston. Joined by thirty-one other artists primarily living and working in Boston, this far-reaching exhibition included paintings, textiles, photographs, and prints.

This was the third group exhibition at The Yard that is part of Construction A R E A, an innovative initiative focused on promoting the work of emerging and mid-career artists through a series of off-site projects.
