Obscura, a non-profit organization I co-founded, was officially launched this May with a celebratory photography show at Asymmetrick Arts in Rockland, Maine. Obscura’s mission is to support artists at all levels through scholarships, grants, and publishing. Initially we had intended to create a quarterly printed publication for the organization, but as our vision evolved we decided on an online publication instead. This idea became Obscuraweb.org, which was launched on May 27. In addition to the launch of the site we have also announced the publishing of a softcover edition of The Blue Poet Dreams, the first book published by Obscura. May was a big month! We have a lot more in store for our organization… including the announcement of our first scholarship, as well as the launch of a store on our site to aid in the fundraising.
