Several RLA members regularly sell their artwork year-round at our local show venues as well as several special bookings each year. "The Rainier Arts and Crafts League" was started in 1968 by Roseli Souza, Paul Chalk, Hazel Gibbons, Fred Oldfield, Aletha Deuel and Becky Stol. 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. "Rainier League of Arts" welcomes new members who are fine artists, photographers, as well as new emerging artists! Yearly club dues are currently only $25.
