The Sainte Genevieve Art Guild brings together artists and people who love art. 

The goal of the Guild is to promote creative expression, as well as maintain the history and legacy of the creative spirits who have lived and worked in this area before us.  

We welcome amateur and professional artists of all persuasions – fine artists, thespians, musicians, photographers, graphic artists, as well as those who consider themselves patrons of the arts.  As a well-established network for artists, the Sainte Genevieve Art Guild provides a close-knit environment where artists can learn, share ideas and test their talents.

In recent years, the Guild has partnered with community groups, such as the Ste. Genevieve Downtown Renewal Project (SGDRP), a Main Street affiliate, who shares our belief in the role art can play in revitalizing a community.   SGDRP is the proud sponsor of the 4th Friday Art Walk.

New location for Guild Holiday Art Show Perfect for "Remember When..." Theme


While the old Koetting Building at 360 Market Street awaits the arrival of the new Ste. Genevieve Museum, it's owners have generously loaned the space to the Sainte Genevieve Art Guild for their Christmas Art Show and Sale on December 3rd and 4th from 10am to 4pm with a "Meet the Artist Reception" on Saturday December 3rd from 4 to 6pm. A very special added touch was the loan of one of the Museum's treasures - the "Dorlu Santa". The front window display will be ready two weeks prior to the show and contains vintage toys and decorations, and of course, the Santa, in hopes it will evoke many, many memories of Christmases past.

The Holiday Christmas Festival December 3-4 includes a parade through town, free concerts at various venues, carriage rides and photos with Santa.  The Guild's Christmas Show is in the heart of downtown, across from the courthouse.  In addition to the exhibit, there will be prints and cards for sale, a raffled piece of art, and a silent auction to benefit the Guild's high school scholarship fund.
