Oreland C. Joe Sr.

Oreland C. Joe Sr.

Master sculptor Oreland C. Joe, Sr. is world-renowned for his work in stone and bronze sculptures.  His works can be found in museum, corporate, and private collections in the U.S. and abroad.  Oreland is a native New Mexican and is of Diné  (Navajo) and Ute descent. 

Oreland was in the sixth grade when he was introduced to sculpture while building a clay-based figure of Confucius.  Oreland’s high school art instructors recognized his talent and encouraged him.  From then on, he was hooked on creating art!  Oreland was invited to join the Cowboy Artists of America (CAA) in 1993 and became the first Native American to be admitted to this prestigious group.  In two decades of CAA membership , he has won four gold and three silver medals for his sculptures.  Oreland was awarded the Gold medal at the Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibition and Sale in 1999 and again in 2006. In June 2002, the Lewis & Clark Bicentennial Committee of Fort Calhoun, Nebraska, commissioned Oreland to create The First Council—five life-size figures and a dog. At the Prix de West Invitational Art Exhibition in 2006, Oreland received the Purchase Award for his sculpture.

Oreland’s work is represented by the Legacy Galleries in Scottsdale, AZ and Jackson, WY, and the InSight Gallery in Fredericksburg.  He lives in Kirtland, NM, near the banks of the San Juan River.  In addition to art and sculpture, his crafts include traditional jewelry making and music, but sculpture remains the mainstay of his work.
