The St. James Court Art Show is located in an area of Louisville called, Old Louisville. Old Louisville is the third largest historic preservation in America, and the largest preservation of Victorian architecture. Many of the beautiful Victorian Style houses were made around 1870. The area also has the highest concentration of homes with beautiful stained glass windows in the U.S. The show is surrounded by these marvelous homes, so you will easily be able to see the fine architecture while attending.
The Art Show has various types of art displayed. There are sculptures, paintings, photographs, jewelry, clothing and all sorts of crafts. The prices of the art pieces are ranged from low to high. Because of the vast amount of art, you will surely be able to find art pieces which meet your budget. The cost to attend the show is free, so if you are short on money, you are welcome to just browse around. My favorite artist is, Janet Bailey-Burch, whom specializes in making spectacular horse paintings.
Each year the show is held on October 1, 2, and 3, from 10AM-6PM. In case you become hungry, they offer excellent food. They serve an assortment of, Spanish cuisine, Greek cuisine, Italian cuisine, American cuisine, and delicious deserts. Drinks include, beer, wine, Lemonade, Pepsi Products, and Coke products.
