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.

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).
