I will be working out of state this week, and so will not be shipping or open for vistors at the gallery.   The Indigo Arts website will be active as always, I will respond to emails, and I will be able to ship orders after October 26th.

The Indigo Arts website has remained active over the last year and a half 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 and according to city masking regulations.   Please phone or email ahead.  

Note:  USPS service remains very  slow.   I don't recommend it if you are in a hurry.   Please note also that USPS shipping estimates include little or no insurance, which we must charge separately.
Please stay safe!

Gervais Emmanuel Ducasse

About the Artist

Gervais Emmanuel Ducasse was born in 1903 in Port-au-Prince. He came from a middle class background and received, compared with the majority of Haitian artists, an excellent formal education. He became an agriculture agent for the government, giving him the opportunity to travel extensively in Haiti. He even visited the United states several times. He worked for the government until 1948, losing his job due to a lack of funding. Forced to find a new profession, he turned to painting, which had been an interest since the age of four. His work is included in the permanent collections of the Musée d’Art Haitien and the Milwaukee Museum of Art, and is published in Where Art is Joy (Rodman, 1988), Peintres Haitiens (Gerald Alexis) and Haitian Art (Ute Stebich, 1978). Ducasse passed away in 1988. Bio info taken primarily from Haitian Art (Stebich).
