I will be out of town for a week between April 5th and 15th, and so will not be shipping or open for visitors at the gallery. The Indigo Arts website will be active as always, I will respond to emails as soon as possible, and I will be able to ship orders after April 15th, 2024. Happy Eclipse everyone!

Note:
With the high cost of shipping many of our customers choose to ship by USPS. For small and light shipments this is usually less expensive, but please be aware that their estimates are often wrong. The service is not always as economical as it may appear, particularly on larger or more valuable shipments. USPS estimates only include insurance up to $100 for its domestic shipments, and varying amounts for overseas shipments. If you ask for full insurance we will recalculate the shipping cost and send you an invoice for any difference in cost.

About the Artist

Cresencio Perez Robles

Cresencio Pérez Robles learned the art of yarnwork from his parents in the Sierra Madre. His more than seventy years have been centered in the Huichol tradition, reflected in his work. The entire Pérez family is involved in Huichol art, and Cresencio himself has been selected to participate in several national and international events demonstrating Huichol art. Each Huichol yarn picture is a one-of-a-kind presentation created from the artist's spiritual visions. Pérez begins by spreading beeswax on a plywood base board. The design is then etched into the wax and the etching is filled with colorful yarn. This is a very precise and time consuming process. Each cuadro (yarn picture) displays Pérez's unique sense of color and form, and expresses a mysticism drawn from Huichol religious beliefs. Bio info from http://www.novica.com
