Creative Soul

Ste. Geneviève has had a love affair with the arts even before its famous Art Colony of the 1930's. The town is replete with paintings, statuary and architecture that portray its rich and varied history. Today, Ste. Geneviève is thriving with art displays of all types: poured pewter, thrown pottery, turned wooden art, original jewelry designs, intricate filigree paperwork, and framed oils, watercolors, photographic and hi-tech computer art. Ste. Geneviève has a wide array of styles and mediums on display for the art aficionado.
