Upcycled Custom Guitar Exhibition

The Musical Journey Begins

by Beau Theige
October 17, 2017 through November 17, 2017

The Taube Museum of Art Main Gallery will feature Williston artist Beau Theige’s Custom Guitars October 17- November 17, 2017. Theige is a husband, father, and hobby rancher on the windswept plains of North Dakota and says, “Although I am not a guitar player myself, I was instantly intrigued by this varied and unique craft, and thus the journey began. If you want to get trendy, it's called "upcycling." Each guitar is handcrafted, inspired by everyday utilitarian objects, antiques, or plain old trash. Half art, half junk, but all guitar. Theige would also like to change the way you make music.

Born and raised in North Dakota and the oldest of eight children, Beau Theige became fascinated by art in all forms at a young age. He attended country school through eighth grade in Williston and then graduated in 1999 from Ray High School. While Theige has held various positions in the work force throughout the years, Beau Theige Custom Guitars has since become his full-time occupation. His interests have taken on many forms over the years: woodworking and mixed media, pastels, and acrylics, Beau has found his calling with his most recent guitar adventure. Proud of his North Dakota heritage, Theige strives to infuse his guitars with true North Dakota spirit, incorporating barn wood and kitchen objects, which remind him of spending time in his grandmother's kitchen on their dairy farm north of Ray.

Since December 2015, he has created over 160 guitars and sold over 120. His guitars can be seen coast to coast from L.A. to Florida, and even as far as London. He's thrilled to have been featured in the Williston Daily Herald, Talkin' the Bakken magazine, Midwest Living (online edition), and on Prairie Public Radio. Theige resides in rural Williston with his wife of thirteen years, Larissa, and their three children. There will a public reception for the artist on October 19th from 5:30 to 7:00 P.M. with refreshments and acoustic guitar music by local musician Leonard Haabak.

This summer one of our awnings was damaged during the road construction work going on downtown.  Unfortunately, replacing only the one that was damaged is not an option due to normal wear and tear of the other awnings.>>
