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 world’s oceans has included expeditions aboard replica historic ships. In the exhibit at the Aquarium, Eubank’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 Aquarium’s Guest Speaker Series. She will discuss the process of documenting the world’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 Women’s Caucus for Art, a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant awardee, a member of The Explorer’s Club, a 2018 Creative Climate Awards nominee, and the awardee of the 2018 WCA/United Nations Program Honor Roll. Her paintings are on exhibit and available for purchase at C Gallery Fine Art in Long Beach.
On November 12 Eubank and C Gallery Fine Art will host a fundraising event at the Aquarium with the proceeds benefiting the Aquarium and California State University, Long Beach’s Shark Lab. The event will include a reception, presentation by Eubank on her expeditions and artwork, and a panel discussion on ocean resilience and what the public can do to help featuring Dr. Jenny Lentz, education coordinator at the Aquarium, and Dr. Chris Lowe, head of CSULB’s Shark Lab.
