Sculpture Joe Cajero, Jr. has

joined forces with River Trad-

ing Post who will represent him

exclusively in Dundee, Santa

Fe and Scottsdale.

Joe hails from the Pueblo of

Jemez and is a descendant of a

long line of Pueblo artists, in-

cluding his father, a painter,

and his mother, Esther, a pot-

ter.

His mother convinced little Joe

to take a piece of clay and try to

create something out of it. That

something turned out to be a

small bear figure, which he sold

before it had even dried.

Today, the thirty-four year-old

artist is one of the best and the

brightest. His work is on dis-

play at the

Museum of Indian

Arts and Culture

in Santa Fe,

and he has garnered over 34

major awards.

My creative energy is often spiri-

tual in nature. Each of my sculp-

tures invariably represent some

aspect of praise and appreciation for

life’s beauty. Since my Pueblo

religion restricts the realistic unveil-

ing of ceremonial life, the challenge

is to use abstract art to represent the

sacred; images

that specifically

capture a reflec-

tion of my spiri-

tuality and

expressions of

my intercession

with God.”
