Over the last year the Indigo Arts website has remained active despite the widespread shutdowns due to the COVID-19 virus.   Under current rules I have been able to resume operations but must limit visitors to the gallery, by appointment only.   I am able to pack and ship most orders within a few days.   Shipping times have increased during this period.  

Note:  USPS has been so slow that we recommend avoiding it entirely, at least for the present.  Parcels sent by 2 or 3 Day Priority Mail may take 2 to 4 weeks to arrive.
Please stay safe in these difficult times.  
We wish you all a healthier, saner and more civil 2021.

We went to Belize to seek out Benjamin Nicholas, one of Belize's leading artists and one-man chronicler of the history and culture of the Afro-Caribbean Garifuna Indians. The paintings which surround Mr. Nicholas in his small house on the Caribbean shore depict both the events of Garifuna history and the ceremonies and activities of their lives - from fishing and farming to Punta dance parties, Dugu healing ceremonies .

In Belize City we discovered the paintings of Michael Gordon, a self-taught street artist, who was until recently homeless. Working with found materials - cardboard, cloth and even broken glass - Gordon portrays the landscape of his daily life, his memory and his imagination.
