Exhibitions at Indigo Arts

October 9, 2014 to January 31, 2015

José Garcia Montebravo was one of Cuba's leading naif artists, with an international following. While he was self-taught as an artist, he was hardly naive in the English sense of the word. ‘Monte’ was a witty and sophisticated man with a sure, fluid line in pen or brush. In his relatively short career the Cienfuegos teacher turned artist created a rich self-contained world of myth and fantasy. Escenas Fantasticas presents paintings and works on paper dating from 1984 until shortly before his death in 2010.

March 27, 2014 to September 1, 2014

The title comes from the traditional Haitian Kreyol call and response greeting. “Onè!" calls the greeter, meaning "honor!" The response is "Respè!" - "respect". The exchange captures the essence of Haitian culture.

Shrines of Life celebrates the art of the contemporary Peruvian retablo. The retablo is a kind of portable shrine or nicho holding figures sculpted of pasta (a mixture of plaster and potato) or maguey cactus wood. The making of retablos is a folk art whose roots go back to the sixteenth century in the Andes (and even to the Greeks and Romans before that). While the art’s origins are religious, the contemporary Peruvian retablos exhibited at Indigo Arts range from the sacred to the secular, to the profane.
