Potter to visit PCPL for talk, demo

Thursday, March 27, 2014

The Putnam County Public Library will host potter Chuck Wagoner on Monday, March 31 from 5:30-6:30 p.m.

Wagoner will give an Artist Talk as well as a throwing demo on the wheel. The event is free and open to the public.

Wagoner created his first pot on the wheel in a 1974 high school art class and has continued to make pottery since.

It was also around that time when Wagoner met Richard and Marj Peeler. Richard was a professor of art at DePauw University. Peeler and his wife's work can be found all around the world.

Wagoner studied at Ball State, the University of Wisconsin, and Indiana State before working at Billie Creek Village for 30 years with his wife Sue.

After Billie Creek Village closed, the Wagoners found a new home at the Bridgeton Mill and continue to work out of their home.

Their work can be purchased from the Bridgeton Mill, Neva's gift shop on the north side of the Rockville square, Arts Illiana in Terre Haute, the Turkey Run State Park gift shop, and the Putnam County Museum in Greencastle.

Persons can visit their website at www.wagonerpottery.com.

Apostrophe Art Gallery on the square will host a one-night exhibit of Wagoner's pottery on April 4, beginning at 5 p.m.

For questions, persons may contact Barbara at 653-2755 or programs@putnam.lib.in.us.
