Alberta Craft Council Staff

Barry Moss – Executive Director / ext. 228
Throughout his life, Barry has advocated for traditional needle crafts, as a teacher, mentor, curator and artist.
Barry's professional career as a textile artist began in the early 1980’s. As a contributor for “British Patchwork & Quilting” magazine he wrote tutorials on miniature work and designed a miniature quilt to commemorate their 200th issue. He was featured in “Canadian Quilter” as one of five men working professionally as fiber artists in Canada. One of the most exciting moments of his career was being commissioned by Reader’s Digest to create the samples for the updated publication of “Complete Guide to Sewing”.

Barry's work as a textile educator and curator in the UK, France, Canada and the USA has introduced him to many different possibilities in textiles. Barry has adjudicated textile exhibitions in England, Wales, Canada and New York state and has participated in international textile exhibitions in Birmingham, UK.

In the past few years, Barry worked in Fort St. John, BC at Peace Gallery North to promote local artists and to introduce new emerging talent. As Executive Director, Chair and Program Coordinator for the Peace Arts Gallery, Barry worked as an advocate for the arts and artists of Peace River.
