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!

About the Artist

Little Me in Bed
Little Me in Bed

Mary Ward was born in Philadelphia in 1911.  She was one of the first individuals to respond to the classes offered at the Southwest Community Enrichment Center in S.W. Philadelphia.  Best known for her musical ability "Little Mary" was also quite a painter.  Ward's images have an exuberant sense of rhythm and highly keyed color.  A mild stroke in the early 1980's confined her to Kingsessing where she was affectionately known as the "heart of the neighborhood".  (bio. from Southwest Community Enrichment Center).  Her work was exhibited in the show "Saying it Plain" at the Moore College Art Gallery in Philadelphia, from May 25 – August 12, 1994 ​​​​​, as well as exhibits at the Esther M. Klein Gallery in Philadelphia in 2003 and before.
