Don Nelms
Owner

Don Nelms has owned and operated automobile dealerships in NW Arkansas for well over 40 years.  In 2001 he sold Nelms Auto Park to the Penske Auto Group.  He and his wife, Millie moved to Jasper, AR in Newton County and Don began his journey into the world of photography.  In the last 5 years, he has pursued images of nature throughout the Ozarks.  He has published 2 slideshows (Fall on the Buffalo & Spring in the Ozarks).  
 
His photographs can be found on display for sale at Nelms Gallery.
 
Nelms Gallery was originally located on top of Mount Sherman but moved to the town of Jasper, AR in 2013.  It features a large collection of canvas prints of Don Nelms' photography.  Don has selected several other artists to feature in the gallery, all inspired by the natural beauty of the Buffalo National River area.  The gallery is located just one block off the historic courthouse square in this quaint area.   
 

When he is not exploring the Ozarks or working with State Legislators in Little Rock, he can be found at Adventure Subaru where he plays a critical role in day to day operations.
