Coming soon to Santa Ana College’s Main Gallery on campus is the abstract water-centered art of Danielle Eubank, who has spent the last 20 years traveling across the world with the goal of eventually visiting all five of Earth’s oceans. Sailing over 250 bodies of water, Eubank has familiarized herself well with water and is passionate about protecting the element that makes up most of Earth’s surface.

Eubank’s exhibition, titled “One Artist Five Oceans,” consists of a series of large-scale paintings inspired by oceans in different areas of the world, with such differences reflecting in the various shapes, colors and hues used in her art. Growing up in California, Eubank always felt closely connected with water, and found it an interesting subject to try to materialize through art, seeing as it takes form in many ways. Although she was always fascinated by water, Eubank had a longtime hesitance of drawing it because of how its appearance is always fluctuating.

“I also wanted to create water that was in my own voice, because I had never really seen images of water that I could relate to,” said Eubank on her beginnings in painting the element.
Industry spouses chime in on preferred date night dining, activities and how their respective places are honoring St. Valentine.
Each week, we recommend a variety of events and experiences from the listings at SparkOC.com, our free website for Orange County's arts and cultural community. We always suggest you be mindful of the most recent health and safety guidelines in California, Orange County, and the venue for the listing.
