BALTIMORE, Md. (October 27, 2009) Artist Pamela Zimmerman of Washington, NC, has been selected as a finalist in the 2009 NICHE Awards for the piece entitled “Catching the Pale, Pale Moon” in the Fiber: Decorative Category.

Only 151 entries out of more than 1,000 submissions were chosen as finalists in this year's competition. The annual awards program is sponsored by NICHE Magazine, the exclusive trade publication for progressive retailers of art and fine craft.

  • Technical excellence, both in surface design and form
  • Market viability
  • A distinct quality of unique, original and creative thought
Winners of the 2009 NICHE Awards will be announced at a ceremony on Sunday, February 15, 2009, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, held in conjunction with the Philadelphia Buyers Market of American Craft.
