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.
For more information on the studio and gallery, call 574-453-9032 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.piercetonartstudio.embarqspace.com.
The gallery/studio is open 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.
