Indigo Arts' Philadelphia gallery space will be closed during the month of April as I move upstairs to a new space on the fourth floor of the Crane Building.  I hope to be up and running again sometime in May, on a "by appointment or by chance" basis.  Meanwhile, the Indigo Arts online gallery will be operating as usual, though shipments may be delayed a bit.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions in the mean time.
