Update, June 25, 2023 / This post from 2022 has been receiving lots of looks the past few days. Please click here to see the 2023 post for the current longest-running art fair in Illinois.
Original Post, May 16, 2022 / The Naperville Fine Art and Artisan Fair 2022 will be held June 25 and 26 on the beautiful grounds of Naper Settlement, a 13-acre outdoor history museum. Hours are 10AM to 5PM both Saturday and Sunday.
Hosted by the Naperville Woman’s Club for more than 60 years, the signature event is a community celebration of the visual arts bringing over 100 talented artists, fine crafters, and gourmet food vendors together where fair goers browse and shop.
“2022 brings talented artists from all across the country for this outdoor annual event,” said Marie Gnesda, the Naperville Fine Art and Artisan Fair Director. “This amazing and inspiring art fair brings original ceramics, paintings, photography, glasswork, fiber, sculpture, jewelry as well as other art forms to Naperville.
Fair goers also will enjoy music, a participatory community mural, a Petite Picasso art activity area for children, a balloon artist and adult beverages.
Two fundraisers also be featured. Area food pantries will receive proceeds from the sale of affordable ceramic pieces at the “Empty Bowls” booth donated by artists from ClaySpace Ceramic Arts Center. The Meeting House on the grounds of Naper Settlement will be the indoor site of the NWC’s Silent Auction. Pieces donated by participating artists will provide monies to the NWC for its philanthropic efforts.
