The 57th St. James Court Art Show

Fifty-seven years ago, a handful of residents on St. James Court found a creative way to earn money for needed repairs to their grounds and their neglected fountain. They strung a clothesline between two trees and displayed their art. They hauled out hotdogs, pots of soup and chili, cakes, pies, tea and lemonade and sat back to see what would happen. It was 1957 and the residents of St. James Court made $150 to help repair their beloved fountain. A lot has changed in 57 years! Currently the show attracts over 200,000 people and features 720 artists. The show is a favorite with Louisvillians, visitors, and the artists themselves. Happening the first weekend in October, Historic Old Louisville, the nation’s largest Victorian neighborhood, is the backdrop for a four square block fine art and craft show. This event has a tasteful selection of highquality original works, including sculpture, jewelry, photography, textiles, painting and other fine arts and crafts, catering to all artistic preferences and budgets. The neighborhood associations of St. James Court, Belgravia Court, South 3rd Street, 1300 South Third Street, Fourth Street and the West End Baptist Church use the proceeds from the art show to preserve Historic Old Louisville, provide scholarships and support charitable organizations. The St. James Court Art Show serves the same purpose as it did 57 years ago: to preserve the historic district of Old Louisville and to promote the visual arts.

Continuing the traditions of past years, patrons will again find food vendor booths and a wide variety of commemorative items for sale. Each year a poster competition is held .This year Julie Wilkinson designed the 2013 St. James Court Art Show poster. You will be able to meet Julie as well as purchase her poster or posters from previous years as well as other show merchandise. On Pink Friday, pink will be featured throughout the show for remembrance, support and awareness of those with cancer and the need for research and treatment. Norton Health Care is the sponsor for Pink Friday. The St. James Court Art Show will be held October 4, 5 & 6, rain or shine. No pets please. Free and paid parking is available throughout the area. Valet parking is available for $20, with a drop-off and pick-up location on Magnolia Avenue between 6th and 7th Streets. Visitors may use "PARC and TARC", at the Brown Garage on 658 South Third Street. Taking a TARC shuttle service between 9:30 a.m. and 30 minutes after the show closes will cost $6. A five-minute shuttle service is offered for guests parking at Jefferson Community College, Broadway and Second Street, for $10 from 9 a.m. until an hour after the show closes. Show hours are Friday and Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm and Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm. Pick up full color programs containing maps, artist listings and other helpful information at major entrances to the show.To find out more information visit www.sjcas.com.
