The Indigo Arts website remains active during the widespread shutdown due to the COVID-19 virus.  I will be monitoring orders and responding to inquiries.  I have been shipping out orders but due to the March 23rd "Stay at Home" order in Philadelphia I now have to delay shipments until I can go in to the gallery to pack them - currently about once a week.  Stay tuned!.  Please stay home and stay safe!
