2017 Summer Exhibition

 

The 2017 Summer Exhibition and Sale of the St. James Artists Guild will be open July 1-31, 2017.

Patron Information:

St. James Episcopal Church in Baton Rouge will present an exhibition of art created by members of the St. James Artists Guild, in the Parish Hall parlor. The work of these professional artists will be on exhibit throughout of July.

The exhibition will be open every Sunday in July, immediately before and following church services, as well as each Wednesday evening before and after our Summer Sounds at St. James concert series. The exhibition may also be viewed during church office hours (M-Th 8:00-4:00; Fri. 8:00-noon), or by special arrangement made through the church office. The Summer Exhibition has developed a following over its eight-year run.

In addition to pieces by the St. James Artists Guild, space is reserved for pieces by the art students at The One Stop Homeless Center who are being taught by parishioners Elizabeth Whitley and Warren Green. Mostly untrained, the works by these students have proven to be insightful and enjoyable creations.
