Gyotaku (pronounced GHEE-OH-TAH-KOO) is the art and technique of Japanese Fish Printing. Gyo means ‘Fish’ and Taku means ‘Rubbing’ or ‘Impression’. The earliest known gyotaku were made in the 1860’s to preserve a true record of the size and species of fish caught by Japanese anglers. It later evolved into an art form.
Join us at the Opening Reception 6-9 PM on Friday, March 3, 2017.
Reimer will discuss his technique during the show’s opening reception.
He will also be demonstrating the ancient technique of Gyotaku Fish Rubbings at our NatureWorks event on March 4!
This method includes the process of rubbings on paper using fish caught in our local Stonycreek River.
The show will be on display through March 25, 2017 during regular hours in the Artworks gallery.
Admission is free to members and a donation of $5 is asked for non-members.
