Over the last year the Indigo Arts website has remained active despite 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 able to pack and ship most orders within a few days.   Shipping times have increased during this period.  

Note:  USPS has been so slow that we recommend avoiding it entirely, at least for the present.  Parcels sent by 2 or 3 Day Priority Mail may take 2 to 4 weeks to arrive.
Please stay safe in these difficult times.  
We wish you all a healthier, saner and more civil 2021.

Biography - Born in 1929 in the southern Haitian village of Trouin. Migrating to Port-au-Prince, Blanchard found work as a gardener at the Centre d'Art. He began painting in 1948, with the encouragment of the American sculptor Jason Seley. Blanchard's paintings of birds and farming scenes were first shown at the Centre d'Art, and have since been exhibited all over the world. His work is included in the collections of both the Davenport Museum of Art and the Waterloo Museum of Art, in Iowa. His son, Smith Blanchard also became a prominent Haitian painter. Sisson Blanchard died in 1981. (Bio information courtesy of Island on Fire.)
