Africa

I will be out of town from July 11th to 20th.  The gallery will not be open but the website will be working away as usual.  Orders will be shipped after July 20th.  I will be checking email mesages and should be able to repy  to inquiries.

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.

In exhibiting the diverse arts of Africa, Indigo Arts Gallery draws on fifty-eight years of involvement with the continent. Our inventory includes a variety of traditional African arts as well as contemporary fine art.

Many pieces from Indigo Arts are featured in the books The Spirit of African Design, by Sharne Algotsson and Denys Davis, and African Style: Down to the Details, by Sharne Algottson. These and other Books about African Art can be ordered from this site.
