The Nevada Museum of Art has twice honored Jeff with solo exhibitions of his work. For a retrospective show at the museum in l992, then curator Howard Spencer wrote that “Nicholson’s art reflects a sense of nostalgia for the distinctive character of Nevada’s historical past, as well as a keen appreciation for the subtle beauty of the natural world.”

Eight works by Jeff Nicholson are displayed at Renown Regional Medical Center.
