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!

Asafo Militia flag from a No.1 Company depicting a chief holding an Akan sword standing beneath seven stars and a waning (inverted) crescent moon on a dark blue field that represents the night sky. Message: Strike when the opportunity is present or success will pass you by. Proverb: The stars are always shining over the town, but the moon is only a few days before it dies.
