River Oaks Square Arts Center is a contemporary arts facility in downtown Alexandria with a two-fold purpose: The center's galleries host art exhibitions throughout the year, and the center provides studio space to more than 40 painters, photographers, sculptors, ceramicists and mixed media artists. Considered a regional hub for the visual arts, River Oaks features the following:

  • Three galleries where regional and national artists show work
  • A 15,000-square-foot studio annex where artists can work in a quiet setting, store materials and collaborate with other artists
  • A guest artist program in which successful national and international artists show their work in River Oaks' galleries while also teaching instructional workshops
  • Summer arts camps for children ages 5 through 13, featuring weekly yoga classes
  • An onsite retail store with paintings, sculpture, jewelry, pottery and more by resident artists
