Biographical history

Artist David Gilhooly was born in Auburn, California and received his B.A. (1965) and M.A. (1967) from the University of California. He studied with California ceramist Robert Arneson, for whom he later worked as studio assistant. Gilhooly taught art at the University of Saskatchewan, Regina Campus from 1969 to 1971, during which time he influenced many Saskatchewan artists, most notably Joe Fafard and Vic Cicansky. David Gilhooly is an important figure in the Funk movement of the 1960s, and his clay sculptures exemplify the ideas of the movement in their carefree, playful manner. Gilhooly is best known for his frog pieces, and he has exhibited his sculptures all over North America as well as in Europe and Asia. David Gilhooly became a Canadian citizen in 1979 while residing in Calgary. He also lived in Toronto for six years, and he presently makes his home in Yamhill County, Oregon.
