Art Walk & Galleries

The Ste. Genevieve Downtown Art Walk

The Ste. Genevieve Downtown Art Walk happens monthly every fourth Friday from 6 to 9 PM. Featuring a different artist each month, we plan to introduce all sorts of genres to our visitors. Most of the artists make their work available for sale and when you purchase one of the pieces on display, a portion of the sale goes to support the work of the Bolduc House Museum (more information is available at Are you an artist who is looking for a place to exhibit your work? Send a jpeg image of one of your pieces to Lesley at [email protected] That action begins the conversation.

Artists who would like to be featured in the Bolduc House Museum galleries during a Fourth Friday ArtWalk should submit a sample of your work in jpeg format to the curator along with an artist’s statement and exhibit proposal. We schedule our artists 6-12 months in advance. We ask you to sign an agreement, set prices for whatever you hope to sell adjusted for our commission, and try to attend the ArtWalk evening itself. While artists do not need to be present for the Fourth Friday ArtWalk, it is highly suggested.
