A Huge Craft Show at St. James

By: Rick Amorey

In a humble corner of the Old Louisville's St. James Court, a small open-air art fair started about five decades ago. What was affectionately known as the St. James Court Art show then as grown into one of the largest of its kind in the country. Every year, over 700 aspiring and seasoned artists arrive from every part of the country.
These talented artists display every imaginable type of artwork, from paintings, drawings, prints, and watercolors to ceramics and pottery, hand decorated porcelain, jewelry, floral arrangements, metal and wood work, furniture, blown, stained, and art glass, even clothing... The list simply goes on and on. Each exhibitor is expected to have made the art or craft with their own bare hands.
It has been a very long time since the St. James Court Art Show became too big for it's original location. Today, the event crowds every inch of St. James, and Belgravia Courts, as well as the majority of Magnolia, 3rd and 4th streets, and even Central Park. About a quarter of a million attendees arrive over the course of the three-day event, utilizing the fine autumn weather and the impressive Victorian architecture.
There are six sections you could see at the St. James Court Art Show. These six sections have different criteria and deadlines; so while you may apply to more than one section of the show, you will have to do so individually for each section you want to join in. But really, it's a lot more trouble than it?s worth, in my opinion. I would suggest to just stick with one section each event.
If believe you have some skill as an artist that you want to show the world, the sheer amount of people at St. James will be extremely helpful for you. You can just try it out, and you never know. You may gain fame for your pieces!
