DAVID THAUBERGER


David Thauberger, Canadian, was born in 1948 in holdfast, Saskatchewan. He studied at the
University of Saskatchewan (BFA 1971), California State University (MA 1972), and at the
University of Montana (MFA 1973). All three degrees were in ceramics. Although he continued
to work in clay, Thauberger began to teach himself to paint. He was strongly influenced by
California Funk Art and Chicago Imagism, which he was introduced to through Regina sculpture
David Gilhoolly. But it was eventually the work of Saskatchewan folk artists that helped him find
his voice as an artist. In 1976 he organized “Grassroots Saskatchewan”, the first major exhibition
of Saskatchewan folk art, and worked for the Saskatchewan Arts Board as a consultant for many
years. He has lived in Regina since 1973.
He has received many awards, his art is the frequent subject of essays in prominent Canadian
publications, and he has completed many major corporate commissions. An artist of national
stature, his work has been shown extensively throughout Canada, in the United States and Britain.
