Fish Out of Water

Dbg0921-fish-out-of-water-610x194-v4-2

Now - January 4, 2015 | 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. | Daily
Ottosen Gallery in Dorrance Hall

Join artist Joe McAuliffe and the Desert Botanical Garden as we celebrate the water that sustains present-day societies in Arizona. With gyotaku impressions of fish from local canals, rivers, lakes and ponds, Dr. McAuliffe uses this ancient Japanese technique to tell stories that reflect his interest in natural history and conservation, and the relationships of fish and human culture.

In addition to the pursuit of this art form, McAuliffe is a research ecologist and director of research at the Desert Botanical Garden. Before he began working in desert environments in the 1980s, his research and publications included studies of aquatic life, including fish, amphibians, turtles and insects.

Viewing the Exhibit:

  • Included with paid Garden admission.
  • Free for members with current member ID card.
