Randy Box

Randy Box is the current artist exhibiting in the Box Gallery. Randy is one of our own Royal Lane Baptist Church family members! Not only is he the son of Martha and Steve Box, he is an "alumnus" of Cookie Stokes' Sunday School class! Randy began expressing his artistic talents in 2012 and still studies at the Bonny Leibowitz's Studio in Richardson, Texas. Randy is committed to using his exhibit at the Box Gallery to extend the ministry of the Oasis Center in Dallas, Texas. Oasis Center provides services for first time youth offenders. He has listed minimum contributions for the pieces for sale in the Gallery. Please, consider going above the minimum amounts to support this important ministry. All proceeds from sales will be donated to Oasis Center (80% ) and RLBC Faith & Arts (20%).
