New Pierceton art gallery offers pottery classes

Last week, Steve and Sue Creighton e-mailed me to let me know abou the Pierceton Art Gallery and Ceramic Studio which recently opened at 105 N. First St., in Pierceton.

There will be a grand opening for the upscale art gallery and ceramic studio from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. March 5, which will include a noon ribbon cutting.

The gallery is managed by Steve Creighton, a local artist, and will feature the work of Creighton, Robert A. Hudson and Penny French-Deal.

This past Saturday, I found myself in Pierceton, where the intent was to go antique perusing, and we walked by the gallery. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to step inside, where I found a warm welcome by Steve Creighton and Linda Dilling, owner and one of the ceramic studio instructors.

The artwork covering the walls in the front of the gallery/studio was breathtaking, but beyond the gallery at the front was a large ceramic studio where classes will be conducted. The studio consists of a large classroom instruction area with five potters' wheels, wedging table, slab roller, extruder, booth style work benches and a large counter work area. There is also a glazing and firing room, but I didn't see that.

Linda provided me with a class brochure for the coming spring classes, so be sure to check out our Crafty Living calendar, or the gallery/studio website.

For more information on the studio and gallery, call 574-453-9032 or e-mail, or visit

The gallery/studio is open 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.
