Found presents recent artworks by three area artists.  Each artist relies on random discovery and found materials as a starting point.  Chaussonnet recuts recovered industrial scrap steel, then forges and welds stylized busts, landscapes, and abstract sculptures.  Rolfe is an assemblage artist whose narrative relief sculptures and shadow boxes are composed primarily of reclaimed vintage household furnishings.  Webb faithfully uses acrylics to portray abandoned trash piles left at the curb for bulk collection.
