David Thauberger, born in Holdfast, Saskatchewan is well known across Canada for his paintings of vernacular architecture and cultural icons. These works of popular culture and postcard images involve an articulate debate on art, culture, and how we view our world transcending regionalism while still capturing the heart of what it means to be from Saskatchewan.
Thauberger's achievements were recognized when he was awarded the Saskatchewan Order of Merit in 2012. He was named to the Order of Canada in 2008, was a recipient of the Lieutenant Governor's Saskatchewan Artist Award in 2009, and received the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2012. Recently David Thauberger’s career was the subject of a retrospective exhibition co-produced by the Mendel Art Gallery, Saskatoon and the Mackenzie Art Gallery, Regina touring across Canada 2014-2016.
His work is part of many public collections throughout our country including the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Halifax; the Burnaby Art Gallery; the Glenbow Museum, Calgary; the Mendel Gallery, Saskatoon; the Mackenzie Gallery, Regina; the Winnipeg Art Gallery; the Art Gallery of Hamilton; and the Musée d’Art Contemporain, Montreal.
