Compiled with guidance from longtime friend, collector and dealer George E. Jordan, the collection showcases the talents of many artists who lived and worked in Louisiana.

This exhibition features more than 80 works from the Nelson collection, including works by artists such as Wayman Adams, Jacques Amans, Knute Heldner, Morris Henry Hobbs, Clarence Millet, Achille Peretti, Paul Poincy, Ellsworth Woodward and William Woodward. Several works of Newcomb pottery will be on display, including vessels decorated by Aurelia Arbo, Henrietta Davidson Bailey, Sadie Irvine, Ada Wilt Lonnegan and Anna Frances Simpson.
"A Most Significant Gift" is on view until Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017, at 400 Chartres St. The display is open to the public free of charge Tuesday-Saturday, 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. More information is available at www.hnoc.org or by calling 504.523.4662.
