Art Sanctuary is a 501(c)3 non-profit status community-oriented arts collective supporting local visual, literary and performing arts through events, promotion and education.

Art Sanctuary was founded on the premise that art is an integral part of life. Our mission is to help make it possible for artists to further their work and careers at a reasonable cost while helping to provide them with the platforms to do so. Our studios provide space where artists can work, rehearse, record, participate in classes, lectures, and exhibitions and take advantage of discussion, critique and collaboration. We believe Louisville has a lot of artistic talent in need of an integrated and vibrant artistic community where art is what matters. We believe in a Gestalt view of this community where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts and by surrounding ourselves with excellence we further it.

From an outside perspective, Art Sanctuary strives to provide Louisville’s patrons and collectors with the cream of the crop. We want to cultivate a community of skilled professional artists with a reputation of pushing the creative envelope with results that put Louisville on the global artistic map, consistently providing a top notch experience for events, exhibitions and open studios.
