George Edgar Ohr: Selections from Gulf Coast Collections
George Ohr: Selections from Gulf Coast Collections highlights work from the collection of the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art and private collections across the Gulf Coast region. George Ohr, “The Mad Potter of Biloxi,” was active from 1883 to 1910, creating innovative ceramics that are a central part of the artistic heritage of the Gulf South, and the broader canon of American Art. 100 years after he ended his pottery career, Ohr is considered an early leader in the American modernist movement.
