Obscura Gallery

Obscura Gallery presents a solo exhibition with gallery artist Brigitte Carnochan of prints inspired by Emily Dickinson.

Much is owing to the richness and mystery of her imagery, especially those flowers that become the vivid metaphors for her thoughts on every subject. Her poems were gardens in…
