I will be working out of state this week, and so will not be shipping or open for vistors at the gallery.   The Indigo Arts website will be active as always, I will respond to emails, and I will be able to ship orders after October 26th.

The Indigo Arts website has remained active over the last year and a half 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 and according to city masking regulations.   Please phone or email ahead.  

Note:  USPS service remains very  slow.   I don't recommend it if you are in a hurry.   Please note also that USPS shipping estimates include little or no insurance, which we must charge separately.
Please stay safe!

PHILADELPHIA - In twenty years of exhibiting the artists of Oaxaca, Mexico, the owners of Indigo Arts Gallery have seen Oaxaca grow into the most vibrant regional art center (giving Mexico City its due) in Mexico. The mountainous southern Mexico state of Oaxaca has long been known as a center for folk art production, including its famous black pottery, weavings, and carved wooden animals. Oaxaca has also produced three of the leading masters of 20th century Mexican art; Rufino Tamayo (who passed away in 1981), Rodolfo Morales (who passed away in 2001) and the still very active Francisco Toledo. But it is the vitality of the younger generation of Oaxaca artists inspired and nurtured by these masters, that has led critics in recent years to identify a distinct Oaxaca School of Mexican art. Oaxacan art draws its strength from native Indian culture, myths and legends. It is suffused with “magic realism” a folk surrealism in which people fly and mysterious juxtapositions are the norm. As poet Alberto Blanco has written, the artists of Oaxaca “all tend to depict one theme: the appearance in our history of another time and place. A space within another space. A time within another time.”
In De la Tierra de los Sueños / From the Land of Dreams, Indigo Arts presents prints and paintings by a variety of contemporary artists from Oaxaca. Though influenced by all their distinguished forebears, this group of artists owes its distinct vision particularly to Rodolfo Morales, (1925-2001) deemed the “Maestro de Los Sueños” (Master of Dreams) in last year’s retrospective at the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Monterrey. Indigo Arts presented a solo show of Maestro Morales’ work in 1997, and a memorial show in 2001.
