CRESTVIEW Artist Charlotte Caudill Parrish's works in multiple media will appear throughout this month at Journey Java Connection on Main Street.



"Charlotte's media includes acrylic, oil pastel, charcoal, ink, mixed, wood and plaster," artist coordinator Peggy Hollingshead stated in a media release. "Her subject matter includes Christian, landscape, abstract, portrait and small table sculptures."



"She's amazingly talented," coffee shop owner and manager Sandra Peters said, noting the shop has exhibited some of the artist's work in the past.



Parrish studied art at the University of Kentucky, the London School of Fine Art, Northwest Florida State College, the University of West Florida and Florida State University. She works in acrylics, oil pastel, charcoal, ink, wood plaster and mixed media.



The coffeehouse, a non-profit community outreach of the Journey United Methodist Church, offers gallery space for artists of all levels of expertise and talent. Performing artists likewise find a creative outlet on Journey Java's stage during open-mic nights and scheduled performances.



Journey Java's artists of the month receive a large area to show their work and a reception honoring them.



To be considered, artists may submit a photograph of their work to Hollingshead at Peggy@drphh.com or Peters at Sandra@journeycrestview.com. Alternatively, they may hand-deliver the photo to Journey Java Connection, 269 N. Main St.
