By  | 

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)- It's an opportunity for people to get a good look at the art community in Eau Claire.

The 6th annual Banbury Art Crawl feature dozens of artists with studios in Banbury Place and others around the area.

Many of the artists are donating a portion of their art sales in support of the Confluence Project in downtown Eau Claire.

"With the artists at Banbury, contributing as individuals, a percentage of their sales going to the Confluence is really a great way to show their community support for this project," Ben Richgruber with the group Community for the Confluence said.

"It exposes the Chippewa Valley to the amazing amount of art in this area and it gives an opportunity for people to buy real art and develop a relationship with the artist and there's something really incredible about buying art from the artist," artist Roxanne Litchfield said.

The Banbury Art Crawl runs Saturday 9 to 5.
