Every year in the summer, the studios are abuzz with activity here at River Oaks. Over forty resident artists are preparing their piece in the Annual Summer Show that features works of art from mixed media to oil and acrylic to pottery. “The Resident Artists Show is dramatically different from all the other shows throughout the year, as it showcases the amazing diversity of talent we have here at River Oaks.

Rounding out the trio of artists that exhibit openings at River Oaks are known for is Chris King, who is known well for his art meets performance installations.
