Joseph Fortune Meyer: Master Potter + Mentor

Thursday, Feb 13 10:00a to 5:00p

Joseph Fortune Meyer (1848-1931) was raised in Biloxi, MS. In 1879, he invited George Ohr to join him as an apprentice at pottery business. From mentor to Ohr to master potter, Meyer threw pottery at Newcomb College in New Orleans while maintaining a home and making pottery on Deer Island across from the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum. The exhibition features 34 pieces of Meyer pottery, as well as one piece of Newcomb Pottery, from the collection of the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art. Open Tues-Sat, 10am-5pm.
