The ocean has been an inspiration for artists and scientists over many centuries, and it
continues today at Cove Gallery with a new exhibition Ocean Devotion.
Ocean Devotion is a unique collection of work from Cove Gallery artists bringing to life
the beauty and power of the ocean, and the diverse creatures that inhabit the planet’s
Most importantly, Ocean Devotion has been created as a partnership between Cove
Gallery and Ocean Institute in Dana Point. The artists at Cove Gallery are proud to
donate half the proceeds of sales of art in the Ocean Devotion exhibition to ArtSea,
Ocean Institute’s innovative student program that blends art and science.
“Cove Gallery is delighted to be working with Ocean Institute and supporting their
crucial work educating us all about the ocean. This exhibition, along with the gallery’s
Young Artist Program with Laguna Beach High School, is part of Cove Gallery’s
commitment to the community,” says gallery artist Steve Bernstein.
ArtSea, an innovative STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and
Math) program, enhances student learning and creativity, their knowledge of the ocean,
and how to protect it for generations to come. ArtSea uses art to explore concepts such
as ocean habitats, bioluminescence and anatomy of marine creatures.
“Ocean Institute has been bringing people closer to the ocean for many years, and we
are so pleased to partner with Cove Gallery on this project,” said Ocean Institute’s CEO,
Dan Pingaro. “This exhibition offers a unique experience of exploring the fascinating
relationship between art and the ocean.”
