I will be away from the gallery from July 28th to August 27th.  The website is receiving orders as usual, and I should be able to respond to inquiries within a few days, but orders will not be shipped before August 28th.  

The Indigo Arts website has remained active over the last year despite the widespread shutdowns due to the COVID-19 virus.   I have been able to resume regular operations.  I am able to pack and ship most orders within a few days.   Shipping times have increased during this period.  The gallery is open to visitors on an appointment only basis.   Please phone or email ahead.  

Note:  USPS service remains very  slow.   I don't recommend it if you are in a hurry.   Parcels sent by 2 or 3 Day Priority Mail may take 2 to 4 weeks to arrive.  Pleae note also that USPS shipping estimates include little or no insurance, which we must charge separately.
Please stay safe!

I N D I G O was founded in 1986 by Tony Fisher and the late Deborah (Devi) Cholet. They wanted Indigo to be a place to share their enthusiasm for folk art and offer the treasures they had found in their travels to the public.

They brought to Indigo not only an eye for design but their lifetimes of travel, collecting and study of the arts of other cultures.

Devi Cholet had collected folk art since she was a child in rural Pennsylvania. Trained in Fine Arts and Interior Design, she had combined her talents in the design of jewelry since 1983.

Anthony Fisher grew up in Africa and after college returned to work as a volunteer for Catholic Relief Services in Lesotho. He studied African art and history at Yale and received a master's degree in architecture from the University of Pennnsylvania.

Tony relocated the Indigo Arts Gallery and the indigoarts.com website to the Crane Arts Building, in the growing arts district in the Northern Liberties/South Kensington area of Philadephia.
