Banbury Art Crawl kicks off Friday with more than 80 artists, vendors


Eau Claire (WQOW) - The Banbury Art Crawl is set to kick off Friday night, Feb. 5 at Banbury Place.

The two-day event will feature more than 80 artists and vendors, food and music. The event is in its seventh year and has become a fixture in the Eau Claire art community.

Many of the artists are setting up shop for the first time.  One of those artists is Kathleen Sheridan, who makes and sells origami.  During this weekend's crawl Sheridan will also be teaching kids how to make their own paper art.  Having that opportunity is part of the reason she began selling the pieces in the first place.

 "It's hard to see the model coming together because it does take a lot of different folds and things, but as you're getting to the end you can kind of see the horse taking shape, or the pig taking shape, and when they begin to see it, sometimes their eyes are really like, wow!  I made this!  And I love that moment because I felt that too, and I still do after all these years," said Sheridan.

The event is free to the public. It runs Friday from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. For an entire list of artists featured, visit the  Banbury Art Crawl's website
