Warning:  USPS is not as economical as it may appear.  After improving a bit over the last year or two,USPS service seems to be deteriorating once again.    Please be aware that USPS only includes insurance up to $100 for its domestic shipments, and varying amounts for overseas shipments.  Please ask for full insurance and we will send you an invoice for any difference in cost.  Two of our shipments are missing as of this writing, and those customers did not ask for insurance.

W E L C O M E to Indigo Arts.

We hope you enjoy exploring our galleries. Indigo Arts celebrates color, texture, and the boundless creativity of the human spirit, with a collection of art and artifacts from Africa, Asia and the Americas.

Our inventory includes antiques and one-of-a-kind artifacts of traditional cultures as well as the finest examples of contemporary and folk arts. We endeavor to purchase directly from the artists whenever possible and to buy from cooperatives and arts organizations which return the maximum amount to the artists themselves.

 

Exhibitions at Indigo Arts

November 23, 2022 to January 31, 2023

 

An Online Exhibition for the Holiday season.

The world of folk and outsider art, like most other things in our world, moves on wheels - 

Two Wheels,

Three Wheels,

Four wheels,

and more.

On rails,

or in the air.

 

I dedicate this exhibition to my brother Jonathan, who epitomized the romance with everything on wheels.

September 29, 2022 to January 28, 2023

An Online Exhibition.

The Maithil paintings of Nepal and the Mithila or Madhubani paintings of Northern Bihar, India are two sides of the same art form.  The historic Mithila kingdom once spread across the southeast plains of Nepal and the northern Bihar and Jharkhand states of India.  In both countries an ancient domestic wall painting tradition has been adapted to painting on paper, but it has evolved differently and at different times in the two countries.
