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!

Pierre-Joseph Valcin

About the Artist

Pierre-Joseph Valcin, c.1994
Pierre-Joseph Valcin, c.1994

Pierre-Joseph Valcin was born in Port-au-Prince in 1925. Valcin worked as a mechanic and stone mason before becoming a painter. Valcin began to paint after he was introduced to the Centre d’Art by his half-brother, the late painter Gerard Valcin, in 1959. Gerard Valcin instructed Pierre-Joseph for his first year at the Centre d’Art. While much of his work owes a debt to Gerard’s instruction, it was always looser, less stylized and more intuitive than his master’s. Pierre-Joseph continued to paint through the 1990’s. He passed away in 2000. Pierre-Joseph Valcin’s work is included in the permanent collections of the Musée d’Art Haitien, the Davenport (Iowa) Museum of Art and the Waterloo (Iowa) Museum of Art, and the New Orleans Museum of Art. It is published in Haitian Arts (Nadal-Gardere and Bloncourt, 1986), Haiti: Art Naif, Art Vodou (1988), Dialogue du Réel et de l’Imaginaire (1990), Haiti: Actualities and Belief (Roche, 1990), Island on Fire (Demme, 1997).
