Bluffton to host faculty art exhibit

Bluffton University will host “Polishing the Mirror” Aug. 29-Oct. 15, 2022, in the Grace Albrecht Gallery of Sauder Visual Arts Center. From the Ram Dass text, “Polishing the Mirror” is a collection of recent works that engage the idea of creative practice and the ritual of artmaking as a path towards awareness of oneself and the world. 

The exhibit will feature works from faculty-artists Andreas Baumgartner ’08, Jim Fultz, T.R. Steiner and Philip Sugden.

The exhibit is free and open to the public. Gallery hours in the Sauder Visual Arts Center are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and 1-5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. A closing reception will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Oct. 15 with an artist talk starting at 10:30 a.m.
