Gary Roller Studio News
There are lots things going on outside of the Taos area for the studio as well!
One of the most amazing art journeys we have ever been blessed to have is about to reach an exciting finale next month. We were commissioned to sculpt a larger than life bronze tribute to a well known author and spiritual teacher, Paramhansa Yogananda.
The eight foot tall bronze is being dedicated and unveiled in June 2018 on a beautiful hilltop outside of Portland, Oregon. There are no words for this journey in this brief intro, but the story with plenty of photos is on the website www.yoganandagardens.com.
Yogananda is perhaps best known for his multi million selling spiritual classic, Autobiography of a Yogi (You can see the book for free at www.GoYogananda.com).
So far the piece has gone to WILLIE NELSON, KIRS KRISTOFFERSON, MICHAEL MARTIN MURPHEY, BUDDY HOLLY, ROGER MILLER, WAYLON JENNINGS, just to name a few.
More details of the association and award are at www.texasheritagesongwriters.com.

This art was a piece I was commissioned to do for a group near Portland, Oregon. The studio was asked to do a piece that would inspire a sense of blessing and world brotherhood to the surrounding area. It's for a gardens they are working on. Writer, teacher Paramahansa Yogananda inspired this piece. He is most famous for his Autobiography of a Yogi...this is for a group that is inspired by him.
Paramahanda Yogananda was an Indian Yogi and Guru. He introduced many westerners to meditation and yoga through his books and example. He came to the US in the 1920's. He wrote Autobiography of a Yogi, a well written chronicle of a fascinating and influential life.
It has been an adventure getting the statue to this stage. ..worked first in a 13 inch model that was enlarged using computer technology. The finished statue will be in bronze.
