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!

Gesner Abelard

About the Artist

Gesner Abelard (1922 - ?)

Gesner Abelard was born on February 22, 1922 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. He worked as an automobile mechanic and then as a private detective before studying sculpture at the Ecole Industrielle under Ulberman Charles, son of Normil Charles, also a renowned sculptor. In 1946 Abelard joined the Centre d'Art where he began painting. He was awarded the bronze medal in an exhibit that celebrated the 200th anniversary of the founding of the city of Port-au-Prince in 1949. He is notable for his paintings of lush foliage and birds. He is considered a Haitian master and has been exhibited worldwide.  While we believe that Abelard is now deceased we do not have a date or place.  (Biographical information above taken from Haitian Arts by Marie-José Nadal-Gardere and Gerald Bloncourt - Paris, 1986).
