This landmark exhibition spans eighty-seven years of the Puget Sound Group Northwest Artists, one of the oldest artist associations in the United States. Largely due to the efforts of Dr. Richard E. Fuller, PSG was founded in 1928 as a place of community for prominent artists in the Pacific Northwest. Dr. Fuller was a prominent leader in the Seattle arts scene who not only served as the first director of the Seattle Art Museum, but also as the Rainier Club Arts Committee Chair for over twenty years. Today, PSG continues to serve artists through skill-based education programs, exhibitions, fellowship and annual scholarships to art students. Join us as we celebrate the rich history of PSG and energetic vision for the future.
For 126 years The Rainier Club has cultivated community and fostered business and the arts in Seattle’s central downtown. Rooted in tradition, the Clubhouse has been at the core of innovation and growth. From the initial plans of the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition to President Bill Clinton’s press conference on the first U.S.-held Asian Pacific Economic Cooperation meeting, The Rainier Club has served as the destination for change.
