Celebrated local artist and illustrator Robert Sauber is a man of many talents and Wilton Library has them on display in his Painted Worlds art exhibition opening Friday, Nov. 6, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Sauber is an award-winning illustrator specializing in children, families, fantasy tales, holiday art, animals and nature. The exhibition is a collection of landscapes and other subjects rendered in oil paint and his distinctive watercolor technique. The reception is open to the public.
An illustrator for more than 30 years, Sauber’s work is featured in countless children’s books. The California native honed his creative techniques from a young age of 11 when he realized he had the talent and people began to watch him work. He graduated from the Art Center College of Design (CA) in 1976, then began a freelance career which had him working at Leo Burnett Advertising and other major design houses in Chicago.
