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!

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.
