En Plein Air Paint-Off

  • Downtown Fuquay-Varina 108 Raleigh Street Fuquay Varina, NC, 27526 United States (map)

An exciting, free outdoor event! Sponsored by Fuquay-Varina Downtown, this event support artists in our area and brings public art to our streets. Friday and Saturday afternoon, a contest of skills will challenge each artist to create an original oil or acrylic masterpiece of Fuquay-Varina Downtown’s historic landscape. On Saturday evening a public auction will be held where art enthusiasts will have a chance to take home one of these treasures in what we feel will become a collection that will be revered for many generations to come.
