Abenaki Art Works

Portage la Prairie, MB

Abenaki Mask

Aboriginal artist Carmen Hathaway (nee Sadoquis), in working with a variety of media -- stained glass, stone, clay, fine leather, fur, beads, and oil & acrylic paint -- honours tradition with contemporary expression.

Each Abenaki original design is individually created by the artist, thereby eliminating duplication. Abenaki Art Works' products are of the finest quality in workmanship, materials and design. Plastic beads are not used in any of her pieces, nor are artificially coloured or dyed feathers.

The Manitoba Museum Gift Shop, Winnipeg Fur Exchange, Four Winds Trading Company (Winnipeg, Manitoba), Revelations (Winnipeg, Manitoba), Montreal Museum Gift Shop (Quebec), Edmonton Museum Gift Shop (Alberta), Ten Mile Point Gallery in Sheguiandah (Manitoulin Island/Ontario), and Leaf Rapids National Exhibition Centre (Manitoba) are among the fine outlets displaying Abenaki Art Works' products.

Custom pieces have been purchased by residents of Japan, Korea, Great Britain, Ireland, Australia, Germany, France, Italy, and the USA.

Carmen's work with developmentally challenged adults in a 24-week pilot Art Program administered by the Manitoba Developmental Center has been one of her most enriching experiences to date. She states, "I believe in encouraging, as well as nurturing the spirit within".

A band member of the Abenaki/Algonquin community at Odanak, Quebec, Carmen has resided in the province of Manitoba, Canada since 1974.
