Pottery event today at Museum

Saturday, June 23, 2007

Area collectors of Peeler Pottery are reminded that a special event is planned for 1-3 p.m. today (Saturday) at the Putnam County Museum.

Collectors can bring in Peeler pots, bowls, plates, sculptures, birdhouses, and more to be photographed. The museum will also accept photographs of collections.

Scott Cooper, a local potter who has worked with Marj Peeler in the past, will photograph pottery to be displayed as part of the Richard & Marj Peeler: A Retrospective exhibit through Sept. 29.

"The current exhibit shows Peeler work from Marj Peeler's personal collection and a few pieces from DePauw University Galleries," museum director Stacy Klingler said. "We had so many visitors describing what Peeler pottery they have at home that we wanted to give them an opportunity to share."

Treats from Fillmore's Bert & Betty's Kitchen in Fillmore will add extra flavor to the party.

The museum will host a second Peeler Pottery Party in August or September.

The Putnam County Museum is located at 1105 N. Jackson St. in Greencastle. For more information, contact the museum at 653-8419.
