UBC Library’s Rare Books and Special Collections (RBSC) presents “Betwixt and Between: The Art and Influences of Charles van Sandwyk”.
Charles van Sandwyk, an internationally celebrated artist and illustrator, earned worldwide acclaim after illustrating the 2005 edition of Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind in the Willows. He is the author and illustrator of several books including The Parade to Paradise, How to See Fairies and Sketches from the Dream Island of Birds.
The exhibition explores some of the connections between van Sandwyk and the artists, writers and teachers who inspired his artistic career. From fairies and anthropomorphized animals to detailed drawings of the natural world, van Sandwyk’s whimsical illustrations appeal to both children and adults.
Betwixt and Between is hosted by RBSC.
