Looking forward to getting out there again soon ...

Due to the government regulations, our Fenceless Arts program is on hold for the time being, though we have been trying to keep our audience engaged and entertained by moving our performances online ...

Our artists feel it is more important than ever right now to keep on entertaining people and have been using Facebook to live stream their acts. The luscious ladies from Black Orchid Belly dance performed from their homes last Sunday and Fuschia from the duo also streamed a live class the week before.
"We are so grateful to our dancers, who have been part of the Fenceless Arts program for a few years now!"
They've even been kind enough to donated proceeds from their classes and performances to Bar Bar Black Sheep's GoFundMe campaign. Our holiday statue was also basking in the sunshine last Wednesday and is due to do so again this coming Saturday. She was also raising funds for the campaign.
Our musicians have been active online as well with Thomas Dibb doing weekly live performances on Thursday evenings and Dawn Iverson uploading tunes to YouTube. You can find links to all our artists' previous performances and information on any upcoming on the Fenceless Art Facebook page
"We hope that everyone is staying safe during this difficult time!
Fenceless Arts will continue to keep entertaining in the virtual world until we can get back out into the real one once again. We're really looking forward to seeing you again soon.
Until next time ...
