The Aquarium will display art by painter Danielle Eubank resulting from her twenty-year quest to capture all the worldâ€™s oceans
The Aquarium of the Pacific will display an exhibit of paintings by artist Danielle Eubank from November 5, 2019, to January 5, 2020. Eubank is exploring the relationship between abstraction and realism. For her One Artist Five Oceans project, she has sailed and painted all of the oceans on the planet. Her process of documenting the worldâ€™s oceans has included expeditions aboard replica historic ships. In the exhibit at the Aquarium, Eubankâ€™s paintings will be paired with messages about what people can do to help the environment. On November 5 at 7:00 p.m., Eubank will present a lecture as part of the Aquariumâ€™s Guest Speaker Series. She will discuss the process of documenting the worldâ€™s oceans and her travels.
Eubank holds a master of fine arts degree from the University of California, Los Angeles, and exhibits widely in the United States, United Kingdom, Europe, and Asia. She is a former director of the Womenâ€™s Caucus for Art, a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant awardee, a member of The Explorerâ€™s Club, a 2018 Creative Climate Awards nominee, and the awardee of the 2018 WCA/United Nations Program Honor Roll.
