I will be out of town from October 22nd through October 30th and the gallery will be closed.  Indigo Arts will be taking orders online as usual, and I will respond to email but not shipping before November 1st.  Thank you for your patience.

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.
