Every year the Naperville Art League holds the Naperville Riverwalk Fine Art Fair. It is a pleasant drive from Chicago out to Naperville through leafy roads.

The Riverwalk Fine Art Fair has a date set every year but it is usually the third Saturday in September. Which would make the 2016 dates September 17-18. But please check for the dates each year on the Naperville Art League website.

Artists attend from states across the country, and are subject to a rigorous juried assessment to assume that only the best take part.

I saw some spectacular work in oil, watercolor, and sculpture. There is also a range of artisan/artist jewelers and photographers.

Because these are creators of unique, handmade work prices tend to be moderate to high. But there are still knick-knacks and jewelry to be had for under $30.

Keep in mind that these are fine art works, copyright to the artist. Take photograph prominently including the art works only with the artist's permission.

dog-friendly


The art fair is dog friendly, but made sure your dog is leashed, can deal with busy crowds, and if you are wise you will keep them beyond peeing-distance of the pricey artworks (some of which are displayed at ground level).

The surrounding area incudes boutiques, cafes, and the Riverwalk itself. So schedule a little extra time to take in the scenery.

Entry is free and free parking is available i nearby streets and the municipal building car park just across the river.
