Fuquay-Varina Arts Center

The Fuquay-Varina Arts Center is a recent addition to the area near our homes for sale in Fuquay-Varina, but it's already made a big splash in the community. From its many art classes to its theater packed full of spectators every week, this organization always has something new in store. Keep reading to learn more about why our real estate agents love it so much. 

About the Center

The Fuquay-Varina Arts Center opened on March 18th, 2019, after a long stretch of renovation and expansion. The main part of the building started out as a Belk's department store before being retrofitted into a space for the arts. This part of the center currently houses an art gallery, several painting and dance studios, and four classrooms.

The building also received an expansion before the center's official opening, adding a professional-grade theater that can seat almost 300 people. This space is equipped with a full technical booth to help bring even the most elaborate productions to life, allowing the center to generate extra revenue from ticket sales to fund its other activities.

Arts Classes for All

They offer a full catalog of dance classes in a wide range of styles, including jazz, ballet, and tap. If dance isn't your thing, they also offer classes on subjects like comedy, improv, portrait sketching, and even crochet. Each class is taught by a seasoned instructor with a clear passion for the subjects they're teaching.

Most of the center's classes are geared toward children, but there are plenty for adults as well. You'll need to register in advance and pay a course fee to cover the cost of any materials you use. Note that the class line-up changes over the year depending on instructor availability, so be sure to check their online course calendar frequently if you're hoping to see a specific subject covered.

Shows and Exhibits

In addition to their classes, the Fuquay-Varina Arts Center also hosts many artistic works and performances in their gallery and theater. The Massengill Design Build Gallery is always full of paintings, sketches, sculptures, and other works by various artists in the community. New exhibits arrive every month or two to give more artists a chance to have their work showcased.

In the theater, shows are performed every week for a community audience. A few upcoming highlights include:

  • Joshua Lozoff's Life is Magic on February 25th at 7:30 PM. This old-fashioned magic show blends classic sleight of hand with psychological tricks to create an entertaining show that is sure to delight people of all ages. 
  • Beatlesesque on March 11th at 7:30 PM. Take a trip back to the '60s with an evening full of tunes from Fuquay-Varina's favorite Beatles tribute band, back by popular demand. 
  • And many more! 

The Fuquay-Varina Arts Center may be new, but it's sure to become a cultural touchstone for the community for generations to come. Contact us today to learn more about the Fuquay-Varina area and local real estate opportunities.
