            Naperville paints the town with The Naperville Fine Art & Artisan Fair

            Naperville is about to be splashed in color. Art is adorning Naperville on June 22 and June 23 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Naper Settlement. The 60th annual Naperville Fine Art and Artisan Fair, hosted by the Naperville Woman’s Club, will feature over 140 artists, fine crafters and gourmet food vendors from all over the United States. Admission to the fair is free to all.

            Donna Shaw, president of Naperville Woman’s Club, says the fair first began in 1959 in Central Park where it remained for eight years. Now, the fair is hosted on the grounds of Naper Settlement. The fair is meant for artists to showcase their work and demonstrate how their work is created. Shaw also notes they are the longest running art fair in Illinois.

            There is also a Silent Auction in which artists donate an item of their work to be included. “Local food pantries will receive the proceeds from the ‘Empty Bowls’ fundraiser put on by ClaySpace Ceramic Arts,” explains Shaw.

            Shaw says there will be interactive art pieces for visitors to check out while at the fair. One of the interactive activities involves attendees to be a part of the 8’x12’ community mural. Shaun Hayes, a 3D chalk artist, will be also be in attendance creating illustrations along the sidewalks at Naper Settlement.

            While browsing all the magnificent artwork, grab a bite to eat from the Food Truck Courtyard on the Naper Settlement grounds.

            “Attendees can enjoy the sunshine as they stroll the beautiful, historic grounds of Naper Settlement and linger to enjoy the ambiance of the venue before and after viewing and purchasing the art pieces,” Shaw adds. The event’s purpose is to expose Naperville to the talent within and beyond the community.

            Art always means something to each person who creates it or witnesses it. “Objects and music calm me when stressed, focus me when distracted, motivate me when I’m not quite focused and inspire me to think of different solutions,” Shaw says. For Shaw, art continues to bring her happiness.

            The Naperville Woman’s Club has been around for more than a century. Established in 1897, it is the longest running organization in Naperville. In addition to The Naperville Fine Art & Artisan Fair, Witches Night Out and the Young Adult Art Contest are also fundraisers that the organization hosts. They also sponsor scholarships which they give out to a student from North Central College, College of DuPage and a local high school. Their tagline is “Art, Education, Community Service.” Shaw says they use the goals set in their tagline to accomplish their mission.

            Meetings are held at the Old Stone Church at 14 S. Washington St. in downtown Naperville. You can learn more about the organization at their website: .
