The exhibition, Regina Clay: Worlds in the Making, was a fitting way for the Mackenzie Art Gallery to mark Saskatchewan's Centennial in 2005, celebrating the singular and collective contribution of a number of artists working in the province during the 1960s and '70s. As Gallery Director Kate Davis pointed out, "Only in Saskatchewan could an internationally revered style of critical thinking and artistic form (modernism) be challenged and dislodged by a medium as humble as clay."

Over 130 works by 14 artists, including David Thauberger, were included in this nationally touring exhibition. In retrospect, the Regina Clay artists are notable for being among the first in Canada to win respect for ceramics as a sculptural medium.
