Marcy Purdy

Friday, November 20, 2020

1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

to observe artist, Marcy Purdy, who will share her fish printing technique - "Gyotaku".

 

Her latest passion is Artfish by MarSea. She began her  "Gyotaku" career while working as an Art Therapist in a school based program for special needs students. As a reward, students earned weekly fishing trips to the Sebastian Inlet. She would print the catch for the students, which made great souvenirs.

 

Gyotaku is the ancient Japanese folk art of painting fish. The Japanese used this method to preserve the true record and size of the anglers catch at fishing tournaments. Gyotaku has evolved into an art form that blends the love of fish and the sea, with beautiful art. The actual fish is carefully painted with nontoxic water based inks. Then, delicate rice paper or fabric is pressed upon the specimen. When lifted, a detailed, mirror image of the subject is revealed.

 

She has developed her own "rubbing" technique in her studio where she makes custom Gyotaku prints and other gift items. She is a member of the International Game Fish Association, and has cosponsored fishing tournaments throughout the state.

Marcy has over 35 years as a Board Certified Art Therapist, Educational Administrator, Certified Qi Gong instructor, Artist and Gallery Owner.

Marcy has utilized the creative process, and movement in her private practice, as well as her consulting work with various agencies and organizations.

Marcy has just become a Soulcollage Facilitator, and is anxious to this powerful process using the language of symbols through images to gain insight and sel discovery.
