Art Guild Postpones Museum Opening Events To Weekend Of July 17

Scheduling art exhibits in a time of pandemic remains a big challenge.
That hasn’t stopped the Ste. Genevieve Art Guild from making plans for its long-awaited grand opening for the museum and arts center on the Courthouse Square.
The guild is looking at options to be able to host its opening event on the weekend of July 17 to July 19.
While the guild credits many volunteers for their efforts in recent months, Ben Galvan and Carolyn Bach continue to do finishing work under quarantine restrictions. Kevin Ord, Peggy and Bert Bay, Breanna Trent, Janice and Charles Raiteri, Virginia and Mike White, Anna and Don Kirchner, Iris Vincent, Stacy Griffith, Dave Carter, Linda Buis, Jean Shattuck, Juanita Wyman, Pat Ferguson, Cloice Lindwedel, Vada Galvan, Ethel Gross, Brenda Thompson and Bill Kiefer also have been working on the building.
The opening weekend also will include the Promenade des Arts event, based on research by guild historian Anna Kirchner. The exhibit “Looking Back & Moving Forward: The Museum Returns to its Artistic Beginnings,” will include paintings by seven of the 1933 Art Colony exhibitors. Three are the original works, and none of them have been exhibited in any of the previous 14 promenades.
