With the high cost of shipping many of our customers choose to ship by USPS.   For small and light shipments this is usually less expensive, but please be aware that their estimates are notoriously wrong. The service is not always as economical as it may appear, particularly on larger or more valuable shipments.    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 recalculate the shipping cost and send you an invoice for any difference in cost.

Indigo Arts’ show of prints from Oaxaca is selected from the summer’s exhibition of prints and paintings, De la Tierra de los Sueños / From the Land of Dreams. Dating from 1986 to the present, the Oaxacan prints bring the story of Mexican printmaking up to the present.. While the landscape, customs, mythology and political struggles they depict are specific to Oaxaca of the last two decades, the work carries on the great Mexican print-making tradition that runs from Guadalupe Posada through Rivera, Orozco, Siqueiros and Tamayo.
