I will be out of town from July 11th to 20th.  The gallery will not be open but the website will be working away as usual.  Orders will be shipped after July 20th.  I will be checking email mesages and should be able to repy  to inquiries.

Indigo Arts has moved upstairs to a space on the fourth floor of the Crane Building.  I am still arranging things up here but I am open on a "by appointment or by chance" basis.  I am usually in the building from Wednesday through Saturday from 12 to 6, but it is definitely best to phone or email first. Meanwhile, the Indigo Arts online gallery is operating as usual.  
Please feel free to contact me with any questions in the mean time.

The text written on the back of the painting has been translated as follows: 
 "In this painting we can see the symbol when the Gods have communication during the night.  To have knowledge of what they say and this is the way we know the word of the Gods.  If you go to Real de Catorce, San Luis Potosi, where you can find the sacred Gods."
