Keith Kaiser gets a preview of the 56th annual St. James Court Art Show.
The St. James Court Art Show is a juried fine arts and fine crafts show that hosts 750 artists from North America, held in the heart of historic Old Louisville among the country's largest collection of Victorian homes.
The 56th Annual event provides the neighborhood, city and state a showcase for artistic talent.
St. James Court Art Show was founded on October 12, 1957 by St. James Court Association president, Malcolm Bird.
Back in 1957, St James Court Association was faced with an empty treasury, mounting debt for recent fountain repairs, and an immediate need to generate funds.
The Art Show seemed to be a perfect means to pay the bills and bring residents together.
The 2012 Show will be held October 5, 6 & 7.
Hours: Friday & Saturday 10:00am - 6:00pm, Sunday 10:00am - 5:00pm.
Admission is Free. No Pets.
