This Friday, the First Friday Art Event features “Gyotaku”, the Japanese Art of Fish Printing demonstrated by Redding’s Andrew Jensen. Popular artist Juli Ryan has had her exhibit extended and has brought in new works. “Fantasy Works,” full of colorful and magical paintings, and “Gyotaku” will share the Main Hall. The party starts at 5 P.M. with live music by Holly Day.
Andrew Jensen works as an Environmental Scientist with the State of California, tasked with maintaining the high quality of waters in the streams and lakes of Northern California.
Andrew is also an expert on the Japanese Art of Fish Printing called “Gyotaku.” Just ask his wife about all the fish he has stored in their family freezer. Why? Because Gyotaku uses real fish to make the art print produced by the artist. You’ve never seen Perch, Grayling, Salmon, Steelhead or Striped Bass used in this way.
