I will be out of town for 9 days (between March 13th and 22nd), and so will not be shipping or open for visitors 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 March 23, 2023.  

Note:  With the high cost of shipping many of our customers have chosen to ship by USPS.   For small and light shipments this is usually less expensive, but please be aware that the service is not always as economical as it may appear.    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 send you an invoice for any difference in cost. 

Exhibitions at Indigo Arts

November 23, 2022 to February 18, 2023


An Online Exhibition for the Holiday season.

The world of folk and outsider art, like most other things in our world, moves on wheels - 

Two Wheels,

Three Wheels,

Four wheels,

and more.

On rails,

or in the air.


I dedicate this exhibition to my brother Jonathan, who epitomized the romance with everything on wheels.

September 29, 2022 to February 10, 2023

An Online Exhibition.

The Maithil paintings of Nepal and the Mithila or Madhubani paintings of Northern Bihar, India are two sides of the same art form.  The historic Mithila kingdom once spread across the southeast plains of Nepal and the northern Bihar and Jharkhand states of India.  In both countries an ancient domestic wall painting tradition has been adapted to painting on paper, but it has evolved differently and at different times in the two countries.

" Gérard was of those beings who make the impression of being eternal. Not because of his energy at his 84 years old but because he has always been in another world, flying over with lightness and the smile all the things of life from here. " Arnold Antonin

November 18, 2021 to March 26, 2022

Gabriel Bien-Aimé was born in 1951 in the village of Croix des Bouquets, now known as the “cradle of 20th century Haitian metal sculpture”.  Croix des Bouquets nurtured such great Haitian sculptors as the late Georges Liautaud and Murat Brierre, the brothers Louisjuste, and Serge Jolimeau.

September 8, 2021 to December 31, 2021

Indigo Arts is honored to present a selection of Haitian sculpture from the collection of the late American multi-media artist and filmmaker, Rudi Stern.  

May 2, 2021 to June 30, 2021


We watch in horror as yet another wave  of the Covid19 pandemic sweeps through India with unprecedented death and devastation.  It is a time to offer both empathy and any assistance that we can. Indigo Arts features a young artist of India who carries on with her work despite the catastrophe around her.

"Bon Coiffure", Coiffure Moderne", "Super Tresse", "Rasta Do", "Ladie's Choice", "Ici Bonne Tresse", "Mervilleuse Tresse Beninoise", "God's Time",  - the names grabbed me as much as the images on the signs which announced the trade of itinerant barbers, braiders and hairdressers in Africa.  Over many years of observing, traveling or living in Africa, I regret that I didn't begin to collect the signs until the founding of Indigo in 1986.  But one of our first shows was a small collection of hair signs from West Africa, mostly from the 70's and 80's.
