LOCAL PHOTOGRAPHER EVELYN MORRIS FEATURED IN AIRPORT ART PROGRAM

Santa Ana, California - Photographs by artist Evelyn Morris are on display at John Wayne Airport (JWA) now through December 15 in the Thomas F. Riley Terminal as part of the Airport's Community Focus Space Program which features Orange County artists. Morris' images depict the beauty of flowers in one series and the spirit of Paris - where she was born and raised - in another.

The photographs are on display in the departure (upper) level near the security screening areas and on the arrival (lower) level near baggage carousels 1 and 4. An example of Morris' work can be seen below.

"I am extremely happy to have the opportunity to introduce my art work with a French flare to American Travelers," said Morris. "With my camera I will always be ready to capture yesterday, today and tomorrow. I want to believe that the magic of art can create peace and understanding in the world society."

Born in Paris, Morris was raised around artists and other creative people. In addition to photography, her career in the arts also included singing under the name ‘Carline', for which she won a French Grammy Award for her first album.
