-McMurdie Award Committee (highest honour for contributions to Canadian Quilting)
Gail Hunt is an international teacher, lecturer, editor, author and a multi-award-winning quilt artist.
In her work, Gail plays with the fabric of the landscape, streetscape, and homescape, molding it to her own vision and mood. Her training and experience in home economics and photography have provided a base and a union of technical skills and aesthetic sensibilities.
Gail has taught quiltmaking across North America and in Australia. Her quilts have won local, national and international awards in juried exhibitions since 1989, as much for their unique vision and emotional appeal as for their evidence of mastery of unusual and invented techniques.
In 1996, Gail published “Quiltworks Across Canada: Eleven Contemporary Workshops“, and in 2003 was awarded the Canadian Quilters’ Association’s highest award for her contributions to quiltmaking in Canada.
Gail’s quilts reflect her pride in Canada, her attachment to family, her teasing of the often rigid quilting conventions, and her exploration of her own little place in the big world.
Gail lives in Vancouver, Canada.
