Oreland C. Joe Sr., known for his stone and bronze sculptures, will be demonstrating his stone carving techniques at InSight Gallery on Saturday, April 5, beginning at 10 a.m.
The demonstration is free and open to the public.
As a sculptor who works in stone, he was influenced early in his career by European travels, using the opportunity to see and feel the artistic works of the Greek, Roman, renaissance and Baroque periods.
A constant study of the stone sculptures in Italy, France, Japan, England and Egypt continue to enhance his work, explained a spokesman.
Joe’s carvings depict Native American lifestyles, songs and dances of the 1800s-1920s.
He works in Utah alabaster, marble and Arizona limestone, in addition to wood and bronze.
