|BRITISH COLUMBIA ARTISTS|
Margaret's younger sister Edith C. Carter was also an artist, and they graduated together from the Vancouver School of Decorative and Applied Arts, receiving their diplomas in the school's fourth graduating class in 1932.
The 1931-32 Prospectus for the school noted that Margaret Carter had passed Third Year Drawing and Painting. She later exhibited with the Vancouver School of Art Graduates' Association.
She exhibited in the Seattle Art Museum's annual Northwest Artists exhibition in 1934.
She showed work in the B.C. Artists exhibitions at the Vancouver Art Gallery from 1933 to at least 1951. The paintings titled Edith and Isobel are presumably portraits of her sisters. She won a silver medal at the 1934 B.C. Artists exhibition.
In 1936, the Spring issue of The Smock Pocket noted that Carter was sharing a studio with Irene Hoffar Reid at 581 Granville Street.
She had a two-person exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery in 1938 with George Goutiere, and also showed her work at the Seattle Art Museum. She was a volunteer art teacher at a local community center.
In 1945 the artist was listed as living in Creston.
In 1951 the Vancouver City directory listed her and her sister as both living at 2296 East 6th Avenue.
She exhibited work with the B.C. Society of Fine Arts in 1959.
Carter died in Vancouver in 1982. She was living at 1661 Burnaby Street in the West End of Vancouver, occupation noted as retired teacher.
