THE SAINT JAMES COURT ART SHOW
More than 700 fine artists and craftspeople from throughout North America converge the first full weekend of October for the Saint James Court Art Show. Ranked the number one fine art and craft show in the country by Sunshine Artist Magazine in 2009, 2010 & 2011, this autumn tradition draws 200,000 visitors every year who come to purchase unique handcrafted items directly from the hands that crafted them.
The show is held in the heart of historic Old Louisville, which boasts the largest collection of Victorian homes in the country. Old Louisville is an elegant backdrop for this display of fine arts and crafts, which will be exhibited and sold along Saint James Court, Belgravia Court, Magnolia Avenue, and the adjacent blocks of Third and Fourth Streets.
Event organizers work diligently to cater to all artistic preferences and budgets. The result is a tasteful selection of high-quality original works that include paintings, sculpture, pottery, leather and woodcrafts, photography, textiles, glass art and other fine arts. Proceeds from the show fund various community charities, art scholarships and neighborhood maintenance and restoration.
Admission is free, and the event is held rain or shine. No pets please.
The St. James Court Art Show is always held the first full weekend in October from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday.
