O Cabriolé

Indigo Arts has moved upstairs to a space on the fourth floor of the Crane Building.  I am still arranging things up here but I am open on a "by appointment or by chance" basis.  I am usually in the building from Wednesday through Saturday from 12 to 6, but it is definitely best to phone or email first. Meanwhile, the Indigo Arts online gallery is operating as usual.  
Please feel free to contact me with any questions in the mean time.
