The Banbury Art Crawl has become a ‘jewel of an event’, celebrating a diverse culture of arts and business in our community.
When the Eau Claire Uniroyal Factory closed in 1992, it was a sad time for workers and the community. Entrepreneurs, Bill Cigan and Jack Kaiser bought the factory and rented space to a diverse community of businesses, artists and residents. Stained glass resident artist, Laurie Bieze wanted to share the exciting and dynamic things going on in Building 13. Several artists ‘threw together’ the first-ever Art Crawl, where local artists could exhibit, sell and demonstrate their work. Over the years, it has attracted thousands of visitors to this free, fun and creative mid-winter event.
At this year's 6th annual event, over 50 artists will sell their work: painting, woodworking, weaving, pottery, sculpture, stained glass, jewelry, mixed media, photography, and fabric art. Also showing their diverse products will be resident small business owners providing pizza, clothing, wine and distilled products, as well as other tasty food items!
It’s a wonderful event for a cold, February weekend - and a great way to bring our community together!
