Pocahontas’ R. J. Reynolds Gallery
R. J. Reynolds? You mean the huge tobacco company has a gallery in Pocahontas? No, not at all. R. J. Reynolds is the maiden name of artist Jean Pearcy, and her art gallery on the Pocahontas town square is her pride and joy. It’s located in an 1880’s era building a block from The Lesmeister Guesthouse, on the same street, and is just across the town square from The St. Charles.
In addition to displaying and selling her own work, Jean features art produced by several area artists and it’s really quite good. The artists meet regularly at the gallery to “talk art” and enjoy each other’s company (including the occasional “pot luck” dinner together).
If you’re visiting Pocahontas, be sure to stop in the R. J. Reynolds Gallery and browse a while!
