Atlantic Highlands, NJ – The Second Story Art Gallery presents Gyotaku “Fish Print” exhibition by artist Matt Rummler, with an artist’s reception Saturday, December 5 from 5:00 – 7:00pm at 78 First Avenue, Atlantic Highlands. Exhibition is free and runs through January 2.
About the Artist
Matt Rummler creates prints by painting fish he catches in Sandy Hook Bay and the nearby Atlantic Ocean and pressing them against canvas or paper. This traditional Japanese art, called Gyotaku ( 魚拓), probably originated as a way for fisherman to document their catch. Today, this art form is practiced throughout the world, particularly in coastal areas. We are proud to present this unique exhibition and celebrate our coastal heritage and history.
