Erzulie Dantor - Vodou Flag

Indigo Arts has moved upstairs to a space on the fourth floor of the Crane Building.  I am still arranging things up here but I am open on a "by appointment or by chance" basis.  I am usually in the building from Wednesday through Saturday from 12 to 6, but it is definitely best to phone or email first. Meanwhile, the Indigo Arts online gallery is operating as usual.  
Please feel free to contact me with any questions in the mean time.

Georges Valris - Port-au-Prince, Haiti, c.2003 (photograph by Marilyn Houlberg. Reproduced with permission).

Georges Valris was born in1953, in Cavaillon, Haiti. Valris had worked as a basket-maker, in a clothing factory and as a stevedore on a cruise ship before a friend showed him the technique of sewing sequins used in vodou flags. He sold his first flag to Galerie Marassa in Port-au-Prince, and went on to successfully market his flags to galleries, collectors and tourists.
