Juried art fair this weekend

URBANA — The 31st annual Craft League of Champaign-Urbana Juried Art Fair is set for Saturday and Sunday at the Urbana Civic Center, 108 E. Water St.

The event will feature the work of 33 artists exhibiting new, original works in ceramics, jewelry, fiber, batik, photography, glass, woodworking, drawing, painting, printmaking, basketry, bookbinding, leather and mixed media.

"We are very excited about the mix of work we have this fall. The art fair is a great opportunity to support the arts and to buy locally," artist Beverly Fagan said, speaking for the craft league.

More than 50 artists applied for the juried show. Exhibitors and attendees come from as far as 100 miles away, and attendance has increased every year.

Hours for the fair are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free.
