Awarded a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Quebec in 1992, Paulette-Marie Sauvé is passionate about innovating in a new contemporary artistic expression. Sauvé does research in digital art, using photography and the programming of electronic circuits. She weaves mainly with silk, wool and cotton yarns.
Sauvé is presenting an important exhibition that is a retrospective of fifty years of her hand-woven tapestries and fiber installations at the Museum of Fine Art of Sherbrooke Quebec / Musée des beaux-arts de Sherbrooke (MBAS), from May 11 to September 4, 2023. This exhibition is sponsored by the Museum of Fine Craft of Quebec / Musée des métiers d’art du Québec (MUMAQ), who presented this show in 2021, curated by Françoise Cloutier. MUMAQ published an 88-page bilingual catalogue of this exhibition.
The 88-page full-color catalogue of a retrospective of 45 years of textile art by Paulette-Marie Sauvé was published in English and French, in 2021, by MUMAQ. This catalogue, along with two other books by Sauvé on natural dyes (La Teinture Naturelle) and spinning fibers (Le Filage), can be purchased on MUMAQ’s website: https://boutique.mumaq.com/en/
