Hosted by Fuquay-Varina Downtown Association Event

En Plein Air paint-off is an exciting OUTDOOR event, sponsored by Fuquay-Varina Downtown as a way to support artists in our area and bring public art to our streets. The 2016 En Plein Air Paint-Off will take place on April 15th and 16th where our area’s most talented painters will compete, En Plein Air (in the open air).

A contest of skills will challenge each artist to create an original painting of Fuquay-Varina Downtown’s historic landscape.

A public auction will be held on April 16th for these original masterpieces depicting landscapes of historic Fuquay-Varina. This is the chance for art lovers and F-V fans to take home one of these treasures in what we feel will become a collection that will be revered for many generations to come. Rain date is April 22-23.

For Interested Artists
Artists (high school age through professionals) will be selected to participate in this year’s event. Each artist must submit an online application no later than MARCH 11, 2016. Once accepted, artists will be notified of the details of the contest and will be required to sign a waiver which allows Fuquay-Varina Downtown to use images of their painting for future public art and marketing pieces.
