I will be away from the gallery from July 28th to August 27th.  The website is receiving orders as usual, and I should be able to respond to inquiries within a few days, but orders will not be shipped before August 28th.  

The Indigo Arts website has remained active over the last year 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.   Please phone or email ahead.  

Note:  USPS service remains very  slow.   I don't recommend it if you are in a hurry.   Parcels sent by 2 or 3 Day Priority Mail may take 2 to 4 weeks to arrive.  Pleae note also that USPS shipping estimates include little or no insurance, which we must charge separately.
Please stay safe!
