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.
