A gallery talk by Rookwood Pottery collector Mark Latta will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 26 to celebrate the opening of Nude Vases, Cubist Faces: Modernism at Rookwood Pottery on the museumís main floor gallery.

His pottery features a unique, modernist style not at all like other Rookwood pieces of that time. Examples of his colleaguesí work are included in the exhibition, in addition to Jensenís cubist paintings.
