CRESTVIEW — Journey Java Connection on Main Street wants up-and-coming local artists to get their due.  

"Crestview has a lot of great artists, but they have no place to show," said inspirational abstract artist Peggy Hollingshead, the cafe's art coordinator.

Hollingshead recently kicked off the first budding artist exhibit, featuring Crestview resident Jessica Bruegenhemke. Cafe manager Sandra Peters organized the project, which allows artists to submit samples of their work for a chance to have it displayed in the cafe.

"I just think it's amazing ... I always enjoy looking at other people's art,” Crestview resident Tina Kemper said.

Bruegenhemke, 26, a life-long artist, was thrilled to be a featured artist.

"I'm really excited about this," she said.

Horses and wolves, among other animals, inspire her.
