St. James Court Art Show

Louisville has many defining events: the Derby and Derby Festival, of course; regular sports face-offs with the University of Kentucky; and a certain arts event which has evolved from the art equivalent of a “bake sale” into one of the nation’s preeminent community arts festivals. The St. James Court Art Show, held each year on the first full weekend of October amid the Victorian mansions and shaded courts of Old Louisville, celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2006.

Our look at the art show includes a visit with a regular exhibitor, watercolor painter Barbara Medford.
