St. James Court Art Show 2012

The St. James Art Show is being held October 5th-7th this year and is sure to be another huge hit! The show is a juried fine arts and fine crafts show that hosts an 750 artists from North America.The event is held in the heart of historic Old Louisville, which features the country's largest collection of Victorian homes.

The beloved art show was founded on October 12, 1957 by Malcolm Bird, the St. James Court Association president. Initially, music was a part of the Art Show as well, including special programs of chamber music, choral performances and big band concerts. The Art Show also provided an opportunity to celebrate the history of St. James Court.
When Ann Higbie and Oscar Stremmel succeeded Malcolm Bird as Art Show organizers, they volunteered countless time and energy managing the show from 1968 to 1992. These were the two people that were responsible for bringing the St. James Art Show to gain national recognition, specifically for a focus on handcrafted art and an increased revenue.
Today, the Art Show is directed by Margue Esrock and welcomes more than 300,000 attendees! This year's event is sure to be outstanding as always, as residents and friends of Old Louisville prepare to delights attendees with beautiful art!
