Background/Bio-Bob Kizziar-Ceramic/Metal Sculpture:

Since the mid 1970’s Bob has dedicated a great part of his life to clay.  The vessel has been his consistent form of expression.  Bob is a superb craftsman when it comes to the use of the potter’s wheel.  It is the finishes of his work, however, that bring him distinction.  Bob’s pottery surfaces have a design derived from a balance of chance and control in the firing process and his pieces have a presence that is enhanced by the contrast of their rough-hewn forms while the process and the artist’s hand are evident in the elegant finishes.
Bob has had his work accepted in exhibitions across the nation and internationally, and enjoys an extensive national list of collectors. Bob and his wife Jenny Kizziar have conducted and participated as experts in workshops throughout the west and in Ireland and Germany.
Bob has spent many years in various capacities as an Arts Administrator including serving as Chairman of the Art Department at Fresno City College. He was the founding president of the San Joaquin Clay Association, served on the advisory board of the Buyer’s Market of American Craft, Vice President of the California Craft Network, an Artist Facilitator for the State of California, the first Gallery Director and Vice President of the Kings River Arts Council, served on the board of the Stonehouse Artists in Residency and was a full time ceramics instructor at Reedley and Fresno City College. Bob lives in Cathlamet Washington with his wife Jenny and dog Cutter.

Background/Bio-Jenny Kizziar: Weaving, beautiful- wearable natural fiber art pieces:

Jenny originally worked with porcelain producing delicate pots and small pieces, but was always drawn to weaving. Bob bought her a loom 5 years ago and she started producing work that she felt was at last expressing her artistic vision. She uses soft, muted colors and a wide variety of fibers creating elegant pieces of wearable art.  Come on out and support these local artists, Friends of Skamokawa and Redmen Hall. See you there!
