The Energy of the Gods

Indigo Arts' Philadelphia gallery space will be closed during the month of April as I move upstairs to a new space on the fourth floor of the Crane Building.  I hope to be up and running again in May, on a "by appointment or by chance" basis.  Meanwhile, the Indigo Arts online gallery will be operating as usual, though shipments may be delayed a bit.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions in the mean time.

Huichol Artist/Shaman José Benitez Sanchez from Mythic Visions: Yarn Paintings of a Huichol Shaman courtesy of the University of Pennsylvania's Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology

Benitez was the subject of Mythic Visions: Yarn Paintings of a Huichol Shaman, the dazzling 2003 exhibit at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. The paintings reflect the visions of Huichol shamans - Huichol history and mythology and especially the peyote-inspired visions through which they believe they can communicate with the deities to heal themselves and their world.
