Rollie Grandbois


Jemez, New Mexico

Born September 8th, 1954 and deceased May 5th, 2016. The Jemez Mountains was Rollie’s second home, looking over the Jemez Springs. He drew on his rich heritage of the Turtle Mountain Chippewa in North Dakota and the mountains where he resided. Having worked as a stone sculptor for over 20 years, his teachers were all renowned stone sculptors themselves who guided him through the many phases of creating a piece of art in stone.  In 2001, the Ministry of Culture for the country of Luxembourg sponsored a one-man exhibition for him at the Mertert-Wasserbillig Commune Gallery. Shortly after he carved a monumental size sculpture at a nearby

ancient castle and conducted stone carving workshops. Over the years, these workshops have helped over 200 aspiring artists, including the renowned musician Bob Dylan, with some having gone on to become full-time professional sculptors. His work has been in galleries and exhibitions throughout the United States such as Atka Lakota Museum in Chamberlain, SD; Viejas Casino in Alpine, CA; and Turtle Mountain Heritage Center in Belcourt, ND, at the Peace Memorial Museum in Hirroshima, Japan; and the Noyuki Soga Collection in Nagoya, Japan. In Europe and Canada he has shown at the Galerie Bruer Mahler in Frankfurt, Germany, and again at the Commune of Pertert-Wasserbilling, in Luxemborg, as well as many other corporate, private, and tribal collections. Figurative, abstract or representational, his sculptures have always been carved with the deep passion he drew from his Native heritage.
