Nicholson’s work was exhibited in Philadelphia at Haseltine Art Galleries and included, at least once, at The Union League Club (1873). He also sent canvases to exhibitions at the National Academy of Design (1874) and the Brooklyn Art Association (1875, 1876). Although Nicholson seldom exhibited in New York City, his work was often included in more modest regional venues.

He was also an associate member of the Northwest Gallery of American Art (possibly located in Chicago).
