  • East End Seaport Museum 103 3rd Street Greenport, NY 11944 United States (map)

Mr. Mullins comes to EESM with a thorough knowledge and vast experience in the fine art of Gyotaku.  Gyotaku pronounced (gee-oh-tah-koo) means "fish rubbing” in Japanese. It is a traditional form of Japanese fish printing, dating from the mid-1800s, used by fishermen to record their catch.

For an additional fee, lecture attendees will have the opportunity to create their very own print to frame and hang proudly as "the one that DIDN'T get away".  Click Picture or Title for more info.

Born in New Rochelle NY, Joe Mullins studied at the Art Students League with Mario Cooper, Irwin Greenberg & Timothy Clark. He works primarily in watercolor, oil pastels and pen and ink. While most of his work is of the Hudson River Valley, Eastern Long Island, and New England, the particular place, mountain or ridge line is really secondary. The focus is the mood, time of day, season, state of the atmosphere, after a rain or just before a storm.

He began making impressions from fish during an Adirondack vacation in summer of 2005 and has been making the impressions ever since. He has exhibited extensively through New York State and New England is a member of the Croton Council of the Arts, the Art Students League of New York and the Garrison Art Center.
