February Schedule

I will be traveling out of state for the last week of February and, due to quarantine rules, will not be able to welcome visitors to the gallery for the week before and after (February 15th to March 6th).  But the Indigo Arts website will be active as always, and I will be able to ship orders out except during the week from February 21st to March 1st.

Oveer the last year the Indigo Arts website has remained active despite the widespread shutdowns due to the COVID-19 virus.   Under current rules I have been able to resume operations but must limit visitors to the gallery, by appointment only.   I am able to pack and ship most orders within a few days.   Shipping times have increased during this period.  USPS has been so slow that we recommend avoiding it entirely, at least for the present.  Parcels sent by 2 or 3 Day Priority Mail may take 2 to 4 weeks to arrive.
Please stay safe in these difficult times.  
We wish you all a healthier, saner and more civil 2021.

Happy Thanksgiving and a Peaceful Holiday Season!

November 27, 2019 to December 12, 2019

 

Thanksgiving is a time to get together,

share food and drink

and give thanks...

and maybe party a little.

 

At Indigo Arts the gallery and website are packed with newly acquired artwork for the holidays and for your collection.

Some recent arrivals include:

Vintage works from Dieuseul Paul of Haiti's St. Soleil movement.

Meticulously created trucks and Jeeps by self-taught artist Leandro Gomez Quintero of Baracoa, Cuba (read about him in an August story in the NY Times).

A collection of drawings by the late Kenyan naif artist Kamante Gatura, perhaps better known as the young cook in Isak Dinesen's Out of Africa.

A new group of Huichol Indian yarn paintings by Hilaria Chavez Carrillo and others in Mexico and a 2004 work by the late Nigerian (& part-time Philadelphian) master Prince Twins Seven-Seven.

In October I was honored with a visit by Max Jimenez from the renowned Peruvian family workshop of Claudio Jimenez Quispé.  Max brought a new shipment of Peruvian retablossculptures and ornaments of many kinds.  

Santa's workshop is already open!

Happy Thanksgiving.
