Victoria-based textile artist Carole Sabiston
began her professional career in England as a painter but found
painting did not allow her to achieve the effect she was seeking
in her work, namely light, movement, and texture.
In 1987 she
was elected to the Royal Canadian Academy and also received the
Saidye Bronfman Award, the highest honour in applied arts design
Sabiston's hangings and tapestries have been exhibited across
Canada and in Europe in more than 35 shows including 18 solo
Redkettle's textile framed
original "North March" is titled, signed and dated Carole Sabiston
1968 on back frame. It was purchased at her first gallery showing
in Victoria. Provenance comes with this work. Her art
of this size and age is rare.
