Insights Literary/Art Journal

Next May, the Solon Center for Research and Publishing will announce its first literary/art journal. Stories from authors published and unpublished will debut here. Original art will accompany the stories. Working with Maine Insights Newsmagazine some of the stories will be reprinted there.

Most literary journals don’t have much art. The Solon Center believes combining the two is the best way to make each medium come to life, which enhances the viewers/readers experience.

The Solon Center for Research and Publishing will host contests and exhibits that come from the work of Insights Literary/Art Journal, working with Gallery Fukurou, of Rockland, Maine and Polar Bear & Company  Stay tuned!

Soto’s Song – a mystical journey with photographic art


Soto’s Song:

By Dave Kroner. Photographic art by Ramona du Houx.

Travel with Soto on his mystical journey through an imagined reality, where he gains perspective and listens to the wisdom in the air, water, fire and earth. Embraced by nature he is able to find truth within himself in his song. With that reality Soto’s loneliness dissipates as he is able to live in the present, without worrying about the past or the future.

The quality printed art book of 22 images retails for $20.00, which includes shipping inside the U.S.A. ISBN: 978-1-882190-90-4. First print edition, first printing 2021.

The book will be available online for the public to read, as per request of the author and artist.

When Gallery Fukurou reopens in Rockland, Maine, after the pandemic, we will host a reception that accompanies an exhibit/book-signing. Stay tuned and stay hopeful for the future!

The Maine Humanities Council, along with a generous donation from a member of the public, made this project possible.
