Second Peeler Pottery Party planned at PCM

Sunday, August 19, 2007

Putnam County Museum
A second Peeler Pottery Party, complete with more treats from Fillmore's "Bert & Betty's Kitchen," is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 24 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Putnam County Museum.

The Museum invites people who have collected Peeler pottery over the years to bring in examples to share with the community. Peeler pots, bowls, plates, sculptures, birdhouses, and more will be photographed by Amber Bowers and Scott Cooper. The Museum will also accept photographs of collections. These photographs will be displayed as part of the Richard & Marj Peeler: A Retrospective exhibit through Feb. 9, 2007.

"The first party was a good step in producing a photographic collection of Peeler works," said Dr. Warren Macy, museum president and organizer of the event. "We hope the second party will bring in even more Peeler pottery and expand the exhibit. Scott Cooper will have some of his work available during the party."

The current exhibit shows Peeler work from Marj Peeler's personal collection and a few pieces from DePauw University Galleries.

The Putnam County Museum is located at 1105 N. Jackson St. in Greencastle.

For more information, contact the Museum at 765-653-8419 or museum@co.putnam.in.us. Regular museum hours are Tuesday-Friday from 1-4 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and by appointment.
