En Plein Air paint-off is an exciting free OUTDOOR event, sponsored by Fuquay-Varina Downtown Association as a way to support artists in our area and bring 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.
