Pics From Abby Ytzen’s Gloucester Fishing Exhibit At Captain Joe and Sons

The show which was made possible by a seARTS grant and lots of hard work by Abby was a smashing success.  Even though there was an incredible amount of things happening around town there were a ton of people who came to check it out.

Abby is really going places.  The talent she has for boiling down incredible amounts of data into such an engaging and easy to understand handbook is nothing short of remarkable.  She did it with her Biomes Project and she’s done it yet again with the Gloucester Fishing Handbook.  People gobbled up all the copies of the twenty or so books she had printed and there was some exciting talk of possibilities for publishing it.

Rachel Carver-Brown did a fantastic job with the refreshments.  It was just a great great Gloucester Day!DSC04707

Click on the picture below to see it full sized and learn some interesting facts for yourself.  I for one was astounded at the breakdown of how many of each different type of commercial fishing boats there were.  42% of the fleet are lobster boats, I had no idea, but this is just one of the factoids that Abby has broken down.  I think if you click on the picture you will get a sense of how easy she made it all to understand even though there is a ton of data in her book and in her exhibit, ANYONE could easily understand it.

-and this is all stuff that anyone that really takes pride in living in Gloucester or loves the fishing industry should know about.

Abby Ytzen/Captain Joe and Sons seARTS Partner With An Artist Exhibit May 21st

Blown away!  When you can get Pete Mondello, a fisherman for over 50 years excited about a Gloucester fishing industry exhibit you know you’ve done something special.

The way Abby has broken down such an incredible amount of fisheries statistics into an easily digestible visual/artistic/educational/fun presentation with everything you need to know about where Gloucester’s fishing industry has been with data and visuals bringing you right up to the present is nothing short of astounding.

This is an uncomplicated 101 guidebook to Gloucester’s fishing industry which has distilled all the data and will give any person a good basic understanding of what is going on around the Gloucester waterfront.  The way it is broken down there is info for people 7 years old to 70 and it is all incredibly interesting.  Every person who considers themselves a real “Gloucesterite” NEEDS to come see this exhibit.

Chickity Check It! Abby Ytzen’s Biomes Guidebook

From Abby’s Site-

Hello.

I am a hard working creative person from the midwest with a passion for design. As a designer and illustrator my work has a distinctive element of playful cleverness. I have a strong desire to connect art to the wider world around me and to use my skills as a designer to create work that is not only beautiful but will have a lasting impact on the hearts and minds of people. I believe design is a powerful tool in the language of our culture. As artists and designers we have a responsibility to the integrity of our visual influence. I believe good design communicates truth and draws people together in community.

 

One of Abby’s many projects was a cool Biomes Guidebook which she prides herself on because she feels that it speaks to young children as well as highly educated people that are familiar with Biomes. You can even check it out free.

Biomes Guildbook

Because education was a main goal of this exhibit, I created a 50 page guidebook with a poster pull out to accompany the biome illustration. Creating another level of depth, this guidebook contains detailed information about biomes and the animals that inhabit them, including conservation status information. As a summation of my research, this guidebook provides the visual and informational link both within my exhibit as well as across the art and science disciplines.

Looks Like We Will Be Working With Abby

Had a fantastic meeting with Abby Ytzen Monday morning and discussed partnering up for the 2011 seARTS PAW program.

Here is the project as Abby describes it on her website-

THE PROPOSAL:
Discover Gloucester is an education series of map/infographics about different aspects of Gloucester: Fishing, Historical/Cultural, and Conservation/Agriculture
Stay tuned, I will try to keep an updated on my process…still in the concepting/researching stage

After the closing of the show her work with return to its permanent home at Ken Olsen Science Center at Gordon College.
