Ichthyography Exhibition


The Works of Stephen Mutsugoroh DiCerbo

In 2014, after more than ten years of work and study with his sensei, artist Stephen DiCerbo was honored with the title of Master Gyotaku Printmaker and bestowed with the artist name, Mutsugoroh. Gyotaku is a printmaking method that evolved from a Japanese fisherman’s way to record his catch. The translation is roughly “Fish stone rubbing” and it is often referred to as Fish Printing.

The subsequent decade has seen Stephen Mutsugoroh teaching the artform and refining his technique in Stormtree Studio in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York.

After establishing a solid body of work, Mutsugoroh is going to be celebrating his current state of artististic development with his first solo art exhibition “Ichthyography”.  The exhibition is to be shown in Ticonderoga, New York at the Ti Arts downtown Gallery located at 119 Montcalm Street. Ichthyography will run from Thursday, June 15th until Sunday July 9th, 2023. Viewing hours are Wednesdays through Sundays from 10 am to 4 pm. 

The opening reception will occur at 5PM on Friday, June 16th at the Gallery. The public is welcome to attend. In conjunction with the exhibition “Ichthyography”,
an in-person demonstration of Chokusetsu-ho, or direct method Gyotaku will be held on Saturday, July 8th at 4 pm at the gallery.  The demonstration is open to the public. 

There will also be a full day Gyotaku workshop offered at Stormtree Studio in North Hudson New York on Saturday, July 15th.  To register for the workshop, visit: July 15 Gyotaku Workshop

If the workshop becomes full, a second workshop will be run on Saturday, July 22nd. To become a patron of the exhibition and support the printing of the show’s catalogue with name inclusion within the catalogue , visit the Kickstarter fundraising campaign at Ichthyography Catalogue Support
