St James remains a true grassroots non-profit art show, fueled by passionate volunteers for the benefit of the community. The show is held in the heart of historic Old Louisville, which boasts the largest collection of Victorian homes in the country. Old Louisville is an elegant backdrop for this display of fine arts and contemporary crafts drawing patrons come from all over the region. A destination art show attracting 200,000+ visitors annually!

In the spirit of a non-profit, we recognize our artists as our partners and part of our mission. We make every effort to keep costs down and we are very proud to have kept our artist fees as low as possible. We don't have the expensive porta potties or gourmet vip tents, but our resident-volunteers will treat you as respected, valued guests. Our host teams visit artists daily offering snacks, water, help with booth sitting and information. We deliver free lunch on Friday, host a dinner Saturday night, offer complimentary soft drink and beer tickets and give $2500 in cash awards. 

You will have full show information ahead of time and your emails will be responded to. A 61 year tradition also boasts very loyal patrons. Ranked by Sunshine Artist in top 200 for sales for over a decade, including many years #1 or #2.

New: Fourth St has partnered with the St James Court section to inaugurate an Emerging Artist Program to sustain our industry for the next generation. Working with both SJCAS artists and local arts professionals, we have created an immersion experience to teach accepted artists "all things art show" during the first year, and participate as exhibitors the second.

Marketing Plan:

  • program for patrons with artist listing, artist advertising opportunities in the program
  • Facebook, Instagram, media interviews with artists during show, media onsite throughout show, regional magazines, rack cards, sponsorships with Fortune 500 brands, community involvement.
"I have nothing but praise for the efficient and well-done organization of this event. Set-up, load-out, great volunteers - the best!" 

"Yours is the most organized show we have been to". 

"Volunteers, hosts, everyone is great." 

"The show is as perfect as the staff and helpers - love them, A+."
