Artrageous is a troupe of multi-talented live performance artists, world-class singers, and recording artists, highly trained dancers, and audience motivators, in addition to veteran musicians, hailing from New Mexico. Their high energy performance is a combination of all arts on one stage, combined with humor and interaction in a frenzy of movement and color. 

Artrageous, presented here on September 26 by Pawleys Island Festival of Music and Art, has a passion for all things art and community, and they bring their message of the arts being an integral and valuable part of human existence to the stage, leaving their audience of all ages singing, dancing, and clapping along. 

Artists, using hands, brushes, and other objects, create visual art pieces, making lines and shapes on giant canvases while the audience is intrigued to guess what each painting will become. Lines and brush strokes become portraits of famous icons in a matter of moments. All the while, live musicians are performing popular musical styles from pop to country to Artrageous original music with Artrageous’ powerful vocalists creating smooth harmonies.

A signature of Artrageous Artwork is Splatter! After the show on stage, audience members are invited to bring up one of their favorite t-shirts or hats or pair of shoes…Get creative! Step into the (free) Artrageous Splatter Station and have one of the artists turn your favorite piece into a masterpiece.
