Note:
With the high cost of shipping many of our customers choose to ship by USPS. For small and light shipments this is usually less expensive, but please be aware that their estimates are often wrong. The service is not always as economical as it may appear, particularly on larger or more valuable shipments. USPS estimates only include insurance up to $100 for its domestic shipments, and varying amounts for overseas shipments. If you ask for full insurance we will recalculate the shipping cost and send you an invoice for any difference in cost.

For the Birds

June 8, 2023 to August 31, 2023

The enforced confinement of the the “Covid years” seems to have driven a lot of us to birding.  As reluctant as I always am to be trendy, we seem to have joined the flock.  We are fortunate to live within walking distance of a vast park system and within east driving distance of many more places where birds gather.  We have also discovered we are surrounded by avid birders who can tell a Parula from a Prothonotary, and that they are overwhelmingly willing to share their knowledge.  So we upgraded our binoculars and joined the flock.  This Spring we have enjoyed the fact that our area is a popular spot for warblers and other birds migrating north to rest and refuel.  

Ever seeking connections between life and art, I also realize just how extensively the birds have infiltrated the walls and shelves here at Indigo Arts.  What follows is a sampling of these birds, depicted by artists from Brazil, Congo, Cuba, Haiti, India, Mexico, Nicaragua,Nigeria, Peru, Tanzania and Venezuela.
