John Morris is a fascinating innovative artist who moved to Oregon from Dana Point and has been an active member of the Surfrider Foundation up there.  While surfing and walking the beaches of the Pacific Northwest, John began collecting plastic debris and learning about the relationship between these products and endangered sea life.  John’s knowledge about the dangers of plastic debris is the inspiration for his art.

We’re pleased to announce that John is donating two framed 11 x 17 prints of the Laysan Albatross, from his New Ancient Rime Series, to this year’s art gala!
