En Plein Air Paint-Off

April 15, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - April 16, 2016 @ 4:00 pm

En Plein Air paint-off is an exciting free OUTDOOR event, sponsored by Fuquay-Varina Downtown 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.

Friday, April 17th-: Artists create painting

Morning- Late Afternoon: Artists finalize paintings around historic downtown districts
6:00 PM Public viewing of finished paintings

The beauty is within our streets, the finished product is in the hands of the artist.
