Carole Sorokin has a penchant for all things artistic. Her interest was sparked, as a child in Michigan, when frequenting estate sales and antique stores with her mother. This passion led her to pursue relevant studies: she holds a B.S. in Marketing with a concentration in Design and Photography and is a graduate of Christie's prestigious Fine and Decorative Arts Program in London. In Europe, she took exclusive tours of major country houses in England, attended private museum lectures, as well as educational excursions to Paris and Rome.
Extensive international travel has given her newfound insight and a special knack for weaving design pieces into her gallery, making it both distinctive and inspiring. Visiting local markets especially enthuses her to seek designs and color schemes representative of the times. The result is an eclectic, exciting mix of the old and new in her retail collection. Having lived in both London and New York has further formed her keen aesthetic.
Carole's fervor for design, influential art, and exceptional furniture spurred the launch of Galerie 888l This unique retail setting features contemporary and vintage art, authentic mid-century furniture, antiques and decorative arts. Showcasing established and emerging artists via Galerie 888 is one of her primary objectives; she trhives on highlighting an array of national and international talent.
