The Indigo Arts website has remained active during the widespread shutdowns due to the COVID-19 virus.   Under current rules I have been able to resume operations but still must limit visitors to the gallery, by appointment only.   I am monitoring orders and responding to inquiries.  I am now able to pack and ship most orders within a few days.   Shipping times, particularly by USPS, have increased during this period.  Please stay safe!

"Every painting in the house was out in the open, but we came to one sort of secret room that had a closed door. 'I guess you should see this, too,' he offered, not wanting to offend my wife. 'We're all adults.' He opened the door of this mystery space, yet another room jammed with paintings, but barely bigger than a closet.

'They're having cosmic sex,' he said, pointing to the two largest figures in the room. Despite one figure's dangling penis, there was nothing that struck me as pornographic about the images. It was like looking at strange comic, or should I say, cosmic, beings from an imaginary world."
