Africa

In exhibiting the diverse arts of Africa, Indigo Arts Gallery draws on fifty-eight years of involvement with the continent. Our inventory includes a variety of traditional African arts as well as contemporary fine art.

Many pieces from Indigo Arts are featured in the books The Spirit of African Design, by Sharne Algotsson and Denys Davis, and African Style: Down to the Details, by Sharne Algottson. These and other Books about African Art can be ordered from this site.
