Chris Daubert’s biography:
I moved to the Valley from the Bay Area in 1986 to attend grad school at UC Davis. I set up my studio at a farm outside of Dixon, which has become my center of operations, and I have been here now for 33 years. As a public artist, I became known for large interactive architectural electrical installations which have been placed in non-profit galleries and museums locally, nationally and internationally. I have also exhibited paintings and objects in many locations. After graduating, I taught at several schools, including UC Davis, the San Francisco Art Institute, and Cal State Sacramento, before I took a position at Sacramento City College, where I became Chair of the Art Department, and where I am now Professor Emeritus. I recently taught a course of Contemporary Art History, 1980-present at CSU Sacramento. I have been an active curator and writer, with positions as the acting curator at the Nelson Gallery at UC Davis, the Director of the Gregory Kondos Gallery at Sacramento City College, and the chair of the exhibition committee at the Center for Contemporary Art, Sacramento. From January to June, 2019, I acted as the interim Director of the University Library Gallery at CSU, Sacramento. I have written and contributed to several books and exhibition catalogues, mostly focusing on Sacramento artists, and most recently, with Eve Aschheim, a book of interviews with the painter Wayne Thiebaud.
