Artist Biography

"Charles Pebworth was born in 1926, a member of the Choctaw tribe in Oklahoma. He grew up in Pawhuska, Oklahoma, where his father was employed at the Osage Indian Agency. He received a BA degree from the University of Houston and a Master's degree in sculpture from Louisiana State University. He continued his studies independently in Carrera, Italy. In 1957, Pebworth joined the faculty at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas as an instructor in basic design. He soon began teaching painting and, before long, developed and taught a course in ceramics and eventually sculpture. He stayed there 36 years, retiring in 1993, having developed one of the strongest sculpture departments in the state. Pebworth has shown at the Moody Gallery in Houston, Circle Gallery in New Orleans, the Witte Museum in San Antonio, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Jocelyn Art Museum, Omaha and numerous others. In 1987, the Art League of Houston named him Texas Artist of the Year, only the fifth to be so honored. His artist's statement says that his art expresses his feelings about his "Indian heritage past and hi-technology present" and that he feels it "gives off an aura of mysticism" that he hopes the viewer can share in. Pebworth has distinguished himself as both a painter and a sculptor."
