The Ste. Genevieve Art Guild’s annual holiday art show is a long-standing tradition, but this year it’s all about something new. This weekend’s show will be mounted in the guild’s new home in the old museum building on the Courthouse Square.
“Thanks to a lot of help from people inside and outside of the guild, the old museum building is being beautifully refurbished as an art center and space for displaying art,” guild president Carolyn Bach said. “It won’t be finished for the holiday show, but the new windows actually bring it back to its traditional look such as depicted in a drawing by Roscoe Misselhorn done back in the 1950s. We really hope people will drop in to see how much progress has been made … and, of course, to see some very beautiful art.”
The work of more than two dozen artists will be displayed. The guild also will host its annual silent auction and raffle of a work of art.
The show opens with an artists reception from 4 to 8 p.m. on Friday, December 6. It will be open during the Holiday Christmas Festival from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, December 7, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, December 8.
