LOUISVILLE, Ky. (September 7, 2023) – The eagerly anticipated 67th annual St. James Court Art Show returns to historic Old Louisville October 6-8. The show recently won the coveted ranking of #1 "Best Fine Art and Design Show in America" by Sunshine Artist Magazine, among 200 of the most profitable art festivals in the country based on artists' reported sales in 2022.
Admission is free to the show and the rain or shine event is held in the prominent Old Louisville neighborhood, one of the largest preserved districts of Victorian architecture in the United States.
In addition to the plethora of local Kentucky artists, hundreds of artists travel to Louisville from all around the world to participate in this incredible show, and only about one in four that apply are selected to show their work at St. James Court Art Show. During this three-day event, guests will discover unique works of art in 17 artistic mediums, from clay to wood, and everything in between. Food and drink from local vendors will also be available for purchase.
“This time-honored tradition of locals, visitors and hundreds of unique artists gathering in a historic neighborhood make this festival truly standout year after year as a must-see event. I couldn’t be prouder to welcome all of our guests to celebrate the 67th anniversary of Louisville’s award-winning St. James Court Art Show,” said Cleo Battle, President & CEO of Louisville Tourism.
