“The only difference between the saint and the sinner is that every saint has a past and every sinner has a future,” Oscar Wilde says in A Woman of No Importance. These fascinating concepts of persecution and redemption are explored in Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art’s newest exhibition, Saints and Sinners II. The show, a continuation of 2016’s Saints and Sinners, explores canonized saints and their journeys, lifestyles, temptations, struggles and triumphs.
The exhibition, at St. Gregory’s University in Shawnee, showcases prints spanning the 16th-20th centuries. Featured artists include Sebald Beham, Lucas Van Leyden, Johann Jacob Frey, Michel Van Lochem and Nicholas Le Sueur.
The show opens Dec. 16 and runs until Jan. 28. Visit mgmoa.org for details.
