East End Seaport Museum and Marine Foundation and Gardiner Mill Cottage Gallery is proud to host an exhibition of Annie Drum Sessler’s Works. On display through July 10th, 2022. We are open Friday-Sunday 10:00am-4:00pm

Prints inspired by the Japanese tradition of Gyotaku fish printing.

Annie Sessler lives, fishes and creates art on the North Atlantic sea coast of America. Her home studio is based in Montauk, NY at the southeastern tip of Long Island. There and wherever she travels she creates monotypes of sea life using inks and fabrics inspired by the Japanese tradition of Gyotaku fish printing. Using the bodies of fish as both printing plates and inspiration she makes unique art prints before they are eaten.

Her work has been featured on the CBS Sunday Morning Show, on the Ovation Channel, in the New York Times, on Red Lobster restaurant menus, on OneKingsLane.com, in the East Hampton Star, East Hampton Press, Edible EastEnd/ Brooklyn/Manhattan and in Dan's Papers.

Her work can also be seen while dining at:

I would like to take this time to wish a Merry Christmas a few days early to all of our museum members, to all the people who took our lighthouse tour in 2021, to all the behind the scenes people in the museum who set up all of our lighthouse tours by advertising, taking the calls and checking in the people who go on our tours and to the East End Seaport Museum Board of Directors. I also want to wish everyone a Healthy and a great 2022.
