He holds an MA in Art History with an emphasis on ceramic and glass design. Among other activities, he guest-curated an exhibition of 19th and 20th Century American Art Glass at California State University at Chico.

Sandra Millius, I.S.A., Jeff Motsinger, I.S.A., and Neal Skibinski will join Kissée on the Rain of Glass Appraisal Team. They will provide appraisals of glass, china, pottery, silver and other antiques and collectibles during sale hours. A donation of $3 per item is requested, with the proceeds to benefit the Portland Rain of Glass reference library fund.

The P.R.O.G. Sale is the Northwest’s oldest, and with the addition of silver, jewelry, linens, kitchen accessories and other antiques and collectibles, it has grown in popularity with even more collectors. Professional dealers from the Northwest will bring exceptional merchandise for sale for this two-day event.

A special feature of the event is the “show” is a beautiful display of glass and collectibles from the private collections of Rain of Glass members. These items are not for sale.

Also included will be a sale of reference books on antique and collectible topics, glass repair by Real Oldies of Yesteryear, and a snack bar. Parking is free, and MAX stops at the Fairgrounds just a few blocks from our front door.
