Christine Ford stampeding to success

The Banff Crag and Canyon had a neat story about one of our favourite local artists Christine Ford.

The article talks about Christine, a remarkable painter for one so young, and the artistic strength that her her late grandmother, Jeanette Ford possessed. Jeanette was Christine’s teacher and mentor.

You can see from the image below that Christine has a real talent for capturing the essence of her subject and allows the light to play beautifully. The piece is titled Light and Dust, one of two original pieces available at About Canada, Banff.

Horses, Light and Dust

The article does not mention that Christine, at only 19, has been asked to exhibit at the Calgary Stampede Western Art Show, in the Gallery section. July 9th – 18th 2010 in the Western Oasis in the BMO Centre on Stampede Park.

The Western Art Show presents well known western artists whose work is indicative of the heritage and grandeur of the west and is recognised as one of the strongest western Art Shows in North America. The Gallery section exhibits the juried work of 25 western artists and inclusion is a tremendous accomplishment at any age.

(Western Art is defined as art that is visually identifiable depicting themes of western prairie/mountain culture, lifestyle, heritage, and characters as defined as art that is diverse in medium and subject including, but not limited to the following: Ranching; Landscapes; Rodeo; Agriculture; First Nations; Florals; Portraits; Architecture and Wildlife.)
