The seven artists were Peter Dean, Jay Milder, Peter Passuntino, Ken Bowman, Nicholas Sperakis, Michael Fauerbach, and Benny Andrews.

In the words of Adam Zucker, the Rhino Horn artists depicted "the human condition as subject matter, criticizing social ills and social myopia." For a good overview of the group and their place in the lineage of American figurative expressionism, see Zucker's online Berkshire Arts article, "Re-Introducing the Rhino Horn Group."
