January 26- April 7, 2023 | Pre-Emption House Visitor Center's Main Galleries | Included in Museum Admission
Naper Settlement in collaboration with the Naperville Art League are pleased to present a new exhibit featuring over 60 works of art by league members. Now on view in Naper Settlement's main galleries, the exhibit features 36 local artists’ paintings, drawings, photographic images, and more based on the theme of curiosity. Several of the artists’ artwork explore their own curiosity about nature and the universe, others show moments of seeming curiosity of animals or children, and some reflects the artists' desire to elicit curiosity in the viewer. Naper Settlement hopes that this exhibit will inspire a long-term collaboration with the Naperville Art League to spark future exhibitions.
Open to anyone interested in art, the Naperville Art League was founded in 1961 by artists who provided classes to members in their homes. With a focus on art education and increasing appreciation for the arts, they have grown to over 250 members, and host exhibits and classes for students from preschoolers through seniors at their Fine Art Center & Gallery in Naperville.
