The Craft League of Champaign-Urbana was founded in 1982 to promote awareness of fine art in the Champaign-Urbana area. The art fair has been an annual event of the CLCU for 37 years. In the first years, it was held in empty storefronts and church basements; it was at the Civic Center in Urbana from 1986-2018.  This will be the first year at the Savoy Recreation Center, 402 W Graham Dr, Savoy

 "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," said artist Beverly Fagan, speaking for the Craft League.

The Savoy Recreation Center is located at 402 W Graham Dr, Savoy. Hours will be 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.  Admission is free.
