The Indigo Arts website has remained active over the last two years despite all the dispruptions from the COVID-19 virus.   I have been able to resume regular operations and 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 only include insurance for up to a $50 value.  If you want full insurance please let me know and I will charge it separately.
Please stay safe!

Reina Ledon

About the Artist

Reina Ledon Perez was born in 1927 in the town of Guira de Melena, in La Habana province, Cuba. “ Since I was 10 or 11 years old, I had many occupations in different companies. I worked selecting potatoes and collecting peanuts and beans for the Americans. They paid me a daily wage, but it was very low.” Since 1952, when she was divorced and her children grown, she has lived in the province of Pinar del Rio, at the far western end of Cuba.

Reina Ledon is a self-taught painter who proudly calls her work “primitive”. “I began painting in 1985, after I retired. I never attended art school, I am self-taught.” Reina Ledon focuses her work on the rural life and lush landscape of her region, particularly the idyllic valley of Vinales, with its striking “mogote” land formations. “I was born and raised in the country; that is why I paint landscapes and birds.”
Reina Ledon has had several one-woman shows, as well as many group exhibits in Cuba. Her work has been exhibited internationally – in Brazil, Germany, Italy, Nicaragua, Venezuela and the United States.
“I was born surrounded by songs and dialogues of birds and the murmurs of palm trees.”
