Learn About the Auction 

Join us for the 4th Annual Benefit Art Auction to support the Fuquay-Varina Arts Council! During the annual Celebration of the Arts on June 6th, the Fuquay-Varina Arts Council will showcase exceptional artwork from local and regional artists and crafters in both a silent and live auction. 

Silent A
uction: The Arts Council will have a booth at Celebration of the Arts from 10am-4pm. During this time, we will encourage Celebration of the Arts attendees to check out submitted arts and crafts available for purchase in a silent auction. Starting Monday, April 6th, we will be accepting donations of arts and crafts of any media: oil, watercolor, acrylic, pastel, ink, mixed media, digital music/art, handcrafted pottery, sculpture, jewelry, metal, or woodcraft. Donations of classes, lessons, or camps that instruct in any art form are also very welcome! 

Live Auction
: From 2-4pm, the Arts Council will host a live auction in downtown Fuquay. During this public event, attendees will have the opportunity to purchase original pieces from local and regional artists and crafters. Starting April 1st, we will be accepting submissions for the live auction. As with the silent auction, we will accept submissions of any media: oil, watercolor, acrylic, pastel, sculpture, jewelry, etc. Works must be original and the Arts Council Auction Committee will jury and make a final selection of works to present at the auction. 

The Benefit Art Auction will assist the Fuquay-Varina Arts Council with its mission to inspire and enhance the lives of citizens in our community and beyond by developing appreciation of the arts, presenting arts programming and education, supporting local artists, & fostering creativity in the community. The auction will give artists a chance to increase exposure of their talent to the public and allow their creative works to be enjoyed and appreciated by others in the community.
