Her oeuvre includes still life, landscape and portraiture, as well as hand-painted porcelain, a popular art form in the late nineteenth century. The Matter at Hand features Ogden's work in the Owens Art Gallery collection as well as paintings borrowed from private collectors. Organized by Gemey Kelly and Jane Tisdale and accompanied by an extensive publication on Ogden’s life and times.
