Rachel Cherry, a local artist, will showcase her work at Indigo Blue Coffeehouse, 212 W. Barraque St., from 2-7 p.m. Friday, June 29.


The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served and wine will be offered from 5-7 p.m., according to a news release.


Cherry will be featured in the first art show at Indigo Blue, the newly renovated coffeehouse and bookstore owned by Maryann Lee.


Lee is introducing the new monthly event that will highlight the talents of local artists, according to the release.


The former public programs coordinator and educator at the Arts & Science Center for Southeast Arkansas, Cherry will feature works she has created since moving to Jefferson County nearly three years ago.


The works vary in form and media from water color and pen and ink to modern sculpture and jewelry.


“I met Maryann when I was living in the apartment next door at 214B Barraque St.,” she said in the release. “At the time, she was working on the renovation of the building that would ultimately become Indigo Blue Coffeehouse. We had many conversations about the renovation, the community, education and especially the kids of Pine Bluff.”


Cherry will be available at Indigo Blue during Friday’s event. Details: Maryann Lee, 870-718-5330, or mizmaryann@gmail.com or Rachel Cherry, at rachelismanager@gmail.com.
