En Plein Air Auction
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. A contest of skills will challenge each artist to create an original oil or acrylic masterpiece of Fuquay-Varina Downtown’s historic landscape. On Sunday 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.
Completed piece for judging must be turned in at the Fuquay-Varina Arts Center (123 E Vance St) by 5:00 PM on Saturday, May 16th. Artists may paint more than one piece but must choose only one for judging. Donations of additional pieces are gratefully accepted and will be used in a live auction during Dinner on Depot Street to benefit FVDA and support our mission for Downtown.
Artist reception and Public Viewing at the Fuquay-Varina Arts Center 4:00 PM.
Winners Announcement and Live Action starts at 5:00 pm
