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!

Biography - Fernando Olivera was born in the city of Oaxaca in 1962. He studied art at the Escuela de Bellas Artes at the Benito Juarez University in Oaxaca. He went on to study lithography with Japanese print-maker Shinzaburo Takeda at the Taller de Artes Rufino Tamayo.
Fernando passed away on June 5th, 2018.
Exhibitions - In addition to five solo shows in Mexico, Olivera participated in group shows in Mexico City, El Salvador, Montana, San Francisco, Palo Alto, Chicago and Philadelphia (including five group shows at Indigo). He illustrated the award-winning children's book, The Woman Who Outshone the Sun, based on a Mixtec folk tale, published by Children's Book Press. Olivera's work was included in the 1994 show "Myth & Magic: Oaxaca Past and Present" organized by the Palo Alto Cultural Center. His work was also included in The Tree is Older than You Are, a 1995 collection of Mexican poems and stories published by Simon and Schuster.
The Work - Olivera's vision is grounded in the traditional life of Oaxaca and the myths and legends of its people. But his work also reflects his social and political concerns. Much of his work is preoccupied with the Zapatista uprising in Chiapas and the conflicts in Oaxaca.
