Join us as Christopher M. Dewees presents “A Passion for Fish: Science and Art Come Together” and discusses his book, A Life Among Fishes: The Art of Gyotaku, sharing a half-century of printing fish and shellfish to full color. We will follow Chris’s evolution from being exposed and fascinated by gyotaku as a graduate student, to his status now as an internationally recognized master in the field. The event will include Chris demonstrating the actual process and technique of creating gyotaku prints.

He is currently Marine Fisheries Specialist, Emeritus at the University of California, Davis. His works have been featured in many individual and group exhibitions around the world. Chris will be available for book signings following the demonstration. The event is free to the public.
