Green Artists

It used to be called "assemblage art" and it consisted of found objects (a piece of driftwood, some china cup shards and preserved butterflies, say) being turned into an art object.

Today it's called "found art" and can incorporate such as cast-off industrial equipment, digital/electronic refuse. Essentially, the artists who work in this style are recyclers.

The show "Lost But Profound" will open Saturday, March 3 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Zask Gallery, 550 Deep Valley Drive, Suite 151, Rolling Hills Estates, 90274 You can RSVP by calling 310-429-0973 or e-maiing

Gallery owner Peggy Zask had this to say about the medium: "I'm interested in it as an art form because it is growing so rapidly as an art movement; artists are embracing the rich world of material cast-offs with an unprecdented vigor." The show contains the works of 14 different artists! Yeah, I'd call that a growth industy myself. Take a gander at
