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!

A member of the "First Generation" of Haitian artists, Montas Antoine was born in Leogane on December 14, 1926. He joined the famous Centre d'Art in 1951, while still serving as a soldier in the Haitian army. He turned to painting full-time in 1960. One of the great Haitian intuitive painters, Antoine's work has been exhibited widely, and is now included in the permanent collections of the Musee d'Art Haitien du College Saint Pierre in Port-au-Prince, the Milwaukee Museum of Art, the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, Connecticut, and the New Orleans Museum of Art. His work is represented in the major private collections, including the Demme collection (the catalog of which, Island on Fire provided the biogrophical information above). Antoine's work is included in Where Art is Joy by Selden Rodman, and Haitian Art and Kunst aus Haiti by Ute Stebich, among other works. Montas Antoine died in 1988.
