This year’s St. James Court Art Show will be taking place online for a month-long event!

While this is the first time in the event’s more than 60 year history that the art show won’t take place in-person in Historic Old Louisville, the show will go on completely virtually.

Titled SJCAS@HOME, the online event will go live on October 2, and continue throughout the month of October.

More than 600 juried artists scheduled for 2020’s art show have been invited to participate in SJCAS@HOME. Their work will be shown on the site as viewers from home can view their virtual booths and video chat with select artists.

The St. James Court Art Show was founded in October of 1957, and has since become one of the largest art festivals in the country. The autumn tradition was originally scheduled for the first weekend in October this year, but had been canceled in June due to the COVID pandemic.

While the in-person event was canceled, the St. James Court Art Show decided to create the virtual event in support of local artists and their fans.
