Summer activities and ways to celebrate the arts are looking a little different this year - as is everything. Lucky for us, many of Fayetteville’s theatres and studios are taking performances, classes and acts to the virtual stage. We are so excited to see that Art’s Live Theatre is expanding its education offerings throughout the summer with the goal of putting young artists at center stage.
Arts Live Theatre goes online next week with their summer YOUniversity virtual theatre classes. Classes are available for young artists, ages 6-18 years old, covering topics such as acting for stage or for film, comedy improv, how to be a magician, fairy tale theatre and more. Classes are taught in one-week blocks virtually on Zoom and are designed to inspire specific age groups.
The online fun begins Monday, July 20th and continues weekly through August 2020. Teaching artists include theatre professionals throughout the country. Click here to see the full list of summer YOUniversity programs and topics.
In addition to the YOUniversity classes, Arts Live Theatre is debuting virtual productions, online audition opportunities, out-of-the-box prompts for projects, video submission calls and lots of ways to collaborate creatively at all ages.

The Fenix Gallery announces the opening of its latest exhibition Sewn In: A Contemporary Look at Fiber Arts featuring recent works by Contemporary Arkansas Artists, curated by Erin Lorenzen.
November is a fantastic month for art exhibitions on the historic Fayetteville Square, with a series of exhibits showing in the Art Ventures gallery throughout the month. The gallery is home to the Art Ventures organization, with a mission of promoting visual arts through collaboration, working to the highest standards, encouraging education and public engagement in the arts and providing accessibility to underrepresented communities.
The Fenix Fayetteville Gallery will be showcasing a compelling, challenging exhibition throughout the month of November, entitled Consuming Culture. This downtown gallery and studio located steps off of the north side of the historic Fayetteville Square is home to a vibrant member community of artists from all disciplines whose work adheres to high artistic standards. With each special exhibition, member artists typically show their own works that respond broadly to the theme of the particular show.
It’s not often an artist starts a piece of work with its name, then draws inspiration from those words. A much more typical path is to create and then (sometimes grudgingly) title the art to offer guidance or explanation to the viewer. Fenix Gallery is showcasing a new exhibition that celebrates the former, as they open Good Humor, Recent Works by Jan Gosnell, running through September 28, 2019. An opening reception for the public is scheduled to coincide with Fayetteville First Thursday on September 5.
A venture to Terra Studios on any given day is a memorable exploration of art and whimsy, a chance to tap into imagination and creativity in a beautiful, lushly wooded setting just waiting for discovery. On Sunday, September 8, the six-acre Art Park at Terra Studios comes even more alive for the annual Fall Music and Art Festival, where visitors will find hours of fantastic indoors and outdoors fun for every age.
If you’re a seasoned art lover and connoisseur—or perhaps you’re a curious newcomer to visual arts appreciation—a stop at the Fenix Fayetteville home gallery is a great place to enjoy a range of creative expression by a community of talented artists. The juried artistic standards at Fenix are high and the perspectives are fresh, both in the exhibition gallery and the studio space where member artists regularly hold classes and workshops for all ages.
Throughout the months of June and July 2019, Fenix presents “Our Universe,” an artistic response to the Walton Art Center’s Artosphere Festival theme of Space. The public is cordially invited to visit a special gallery exhibition and view temporary installations, as well as take part in workshops, attend readings and hear unique musical performances. Here are a few highlights, and more events will be announced, so be sure to check the festival webpage for evolving details.
Tucked right next to a quiet stretch of the Frisco Trail just a few steps from the bustle of Dickson Street, you’ll find a unique collection of spaces for makers and artists to do their work. Located in an old converted warehouse and Quonset hut alongside a narrow section of urban woodland, Trailside Village is a haven for creativity in a wonderfully walkable area of the city.
