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!

Sandra Dooley

About the Artist

Santa Fe, Cuba, born 1964
A self-taught artist, Sandra Dooley began to paint at 36. Her paintings reflect the intimate moments in Cuban daily life that center on family friends, pets and even fantasy scenes. Her compositions, influenced by great 20th century artists, often feature women distinguished by their thoughtful and reflective expressions.

Dooley has also explored mixed media techniques using upcycled materials. Recycling old materials is essential in Cuba; Dooley grew up watching her mother and grandmother bring new life to used objects by adding recycled elements. Using the memories of mother and grandmother as inspiration, Dooley has created collages that incorporate recycled fabric, burlap sequins, lace, buttons to add texture and oil paint to create bright splashes of color.

Dooley has been exhibiting her works since 2000, in Cuba, Canada, Germany and the United States.
