Since 1957, the St. James Court Art Show has been held in the same historic Old Louisville location on St. James Court and surrounding streets. The year 2019 marks its 63rd anniversary, which makes St. James Court Art Show one of the longest-running art shows of its kind in the country. It began with 11 artists who hung their paintings on the clothesline strung between two trees on St. James Court; it is now host to over 700 artists from over 46 states and Candada. The St. James Art Show attracts some of the finest artists and crafts persons in North America. The cultural impact on our community that is being presented with such a unique opportunity to see and purchase work from such talented artists is significant.
