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. All other exhibits focus on one artist or one discipline – this one is basically a creative free for all,” says Aubrey Bolen, Artistic Director for River Oaks.

Exhibit Openings at River Oaks are always special – one doesn’t get a chance to rub elbows with, and exchange ideas with renowned regional artists just any day after all. The May 2014 Exhibit Opening, features one of Louisiana’s up-and-coming artist, Jacob Broussard, and one of Louisiana’s most talented and established artists, Jane Crowell. 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.

River Oaks Exhibit to open Eyes and Minds

To artist Sue Karr Boagni, the process of creating art is much like a dance, a give and take between artist and medium, a language all of its own. Her work, known for its brilliant colors and eye-pleasing composition, shows it – “Sue’s use of texture and color, combined with the fluidity of her shapes, is truly the work of an artist that is one with the medium,” says Aubrey Bolen, Artistic Director at River Oaks. “Her work has been featured in American Artist Watercolor Magazine and has been shown all over the Southern U.S.
