SHAWNEE – The Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art opened the exhibition, Saints and Sinners II: Prints from the 16th through the 20th Centuries, on December 16. This exhibition is open until January 28, 2018.
“This exhibition is allowing us to showcase some of our beautiful prints that are three, four, and five hundred years old. Several of the pieces featured in this exhibition are a recent gift,” said Delaynna Trim, Curator of Collections of the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art. “We also have a Bible on display that was printed in 1542 in Antwerp, Belgium. The details are amazing, so we even have magnifying glasses out to help you see all the details!”
Saints and Sinners II is a continuation of the Saints and Sinners exhibit in 2016 with more saints and their stories. This exhibit consists of prints from the 16th through the 20th centuries including artists such as Raphael Sadelr (1560-1628), Johann Jacob Frey (1681-1752), Michel Van Lochem (1601-1647), and Nicholas Le Sueur (1716-1783). The focus is on the stories of the saints and how they overcame their struggles and persecution.
The Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art will be closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Eve, and New Years Day. Otherwise, bring your family to see a Shawnee treasure.
