The Mirror of the Martyrs — Reception @ Grace Albrecht Gallery
Oct 7 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

A reception for the traveling exhibit “The Mirror of the Martyrs” will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 7, in the Grace Albrecht Gallery of Bluffton University’s Sauder Visual Arts Center.

The exhibit is based on illustrated martyr stories from the 1685 book, “Martyrs Mirror.” It tells the story of religious conflict and violence in the Reformation era from the perspective of Anabaptist martyrs and offers one way to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Protestant Reformation.

Visitors will have the opportunity to meet with Bluffton art faculty during the reception, which is free and open to the public.

The exhibit runs from Oct. 1 through Nov. 5. Regular gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday and 1 to 6 p.m. Sunday.
