Several RLA members regularly sell their artwork year-round at our local show venues as well as several special bookings each year.

Many professional artist members included: Fred Oldfield , Norman Butterfield, Mark Downey, Dale Thompson, Alice Larson, Mary Jarrett and Aletha Deuel. Years later, the name was changed "Rainier League of Arts" which better represents club members' interest, focus and direction.
