Happy Thanksgiving and a Peaceful Holiday Season!

November 27, 2019 to December 31, 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.
