Welcome to the Parkland Art League

About Us

The Parkland Art League is a group of over 80 artists whose objectives are: to encourage friendship among persons interested in art, to awaken and sustain their interest in art and to exhibit the art of our members. In addition we offer the public the opportunity to purchase original art.  Members are provided opportunities to advance their skills by offering a lending library of instructional DVDs, having exceptional artist demonstrators at monthly meetings and hosting workshops taught by artists who excel in their craft. 

Our Next meeting 3/12/24 at 7pm will be a drawing session with musician Russ Rentler as our model. Bring your solvent free medium, an easel and drop cloth. 

 For more info visit:


Russ Rentler is "A gifted songwriter and fine musician"  Sing Out Magazine


In 2016, Russ retired from medical practice. This has finally allowed him to pursue his life-long dream and passion of performing original and traditional music.  He counts Bob Dylan, John McCutcheon and Walt Michaels as major influences in his style.  His live performances are a mix of folk, celtic and blues-inspired tunes with multiple instrument changes interspersed with his off-beat humor and  wry observations about life that keep the audiences coming back for more.   

    BIG THANKS to 
 Richard Farmer and Sylvia Roth who hosted
