Overview

Sarah Martin’s work integrates vintage photos with paint, bringing history to the present. This series of 15 paintings celebrates Marilyn Monroe when she was in Banff. In 1953 Marilyn Monroe stayed at The Fairmont Banff Springs during the filming of the movie ‘River of No Return’ in Banff National Park. While filming here she sprained her ankle. It is said that each morning the bellmen would draw straws to decide who would be the lucky one to bring Ms. Monroe down in a wheelchair to her waiting chauffeured car. Legendary baseball player Joe DiMaggio, who had nine World Series wins and three MVP titles under his belt, was courting her at the time and appears in some of the photos included in this feature. Reception to take place at Canada House Gallery on Saturday, June 16, 2 - 5 pm
