Spring Is Here - Happy St. Patrick's Day

Spring has arrived in Banff. The Canada Geese are back along with the robins. This is a true sign as Springtime in the Rockies on this wonderful St. Patrick's Day.

With it being St. Patrick's Day today, did you know that "originally the colour associated with Saint Patrick was blue. However, over the years the colour green and its association with Saint Patrick's day grew.[Green ribbons and shamrocks were worn in celebration of St Patrick's Day as early as the 17th century. He is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pre-Christian Irish, and the wearing and display of shamrocks and shamrock-inspired designs have become a ubiquitous feature of the day. Then in the 1798 rebellion in hopes of making a political statement Irish soldiers wore full green uniforms on 17 March in hopes of catching attention with their unusual fashion gimmick. The phrase "the wearing of the green", meaning to wear a shamrock on one's clothing, derives from the song of the same name."

Don't miss out on this opportunity to discover the talents of our local community.

One particular artist is Christine Ford. To discover more of her works, website can be found at www.ChristineFord.ca and the following is from her website:
"Christine Ford was born and raised in Banff Alberta, where she attended Banff Community High School and graduated with honors. She was brought up in a very artistic family which has helped her dive into many diverse art forms and increased her knowledge and appreciation for different areas of art. Her Grandmother, Jeanette Ford who is an artist and art teacher, saw this interest and began to teach and guide Christine. It was the love of the art and the support and influence of her family that ultimately led her on her artistic path.

Being born and raised in a National Park filled Christine with a deep love and appreciation of nature, which has been a huge influence on her and her art. Christine's ultimate goal with all her work is showing the beauty, strength and quiet moments of the natural world as she see's it.

Christine attended the Alberta College of Art and Design, where she excelled, and is now working hard to increase her portfolio and become more active in the art community."
