Happy New Year!

The Indigo Arts website has remained active during the widespread shutdowns due to the COVID-19 virus.   Under current rules I have been able to resume operations but must limit visitors to the gallery, by appointment only.   I am monitoring orders and responding to inquiries.  I am now able to pack and ship most orders within a few days.   Shipping times have increased during this period.  USPS has been so slow that we recommend avoiding it entirely, at least for the present.  
Please stay safe in these difficult times.  
We wish for a healthier, saner and more civil 2021.
