Dinner honoring Edwina Sandys, grand-daughter of Sir Winston Churchill, and book-signing party for ART OF EDWINA SANDYS, hosted by Alexandre Gertsman, November 15, 2011

The exhibition Art of Edwina Sandys: A Retrospective chronicled four decades of artist Edwina Sandys’ work, including Christa (1975), the first representation of a female Christ on a cross. This exhibition coincided with the release of the book, EDWINA SANDYS ART (Glitterati Incorporated), the first comprehensive volume of Sandys’ work. Widely recognized today for large-scale metal and stone sculptures installed in parks, plazas and sculpture gardens around the world, her other works consist of paintings, drawings on paper, mixed media objects, as well granite and marble pieces.

Edwina Sandys is the daughter of former British Cabinet Minister, Duncan Sandys and Diana Churchill, and the granddaughter of Winston Churchill. While Sandys decided not to enter the political arena of her family, she has inherited the artistic skills from both her father and grandfather.

Edwina’s husband, an architect Richard Kaplan, one of the major promoters of the revitalization of lower Manhattan, was present, and so did attend Christine Ebersole, winner of Tony Award, Drama Desk Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, and Drama League Award.
