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. Join us and see all that downtown has to offer. 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 that will become a collection for many generations to come.
