3: Victoria Roberts Assemblage Art Victoria Roberts, a Los Angeles native, has worked professionally in a variety of arts including animation, graphic art, sculpture, and assemblage. Beginning in the 70’s, she learned the art and craft of hand-painting animation cells and contributed to several animated segments for television including; The Sonny and Cher Show, The Carol Burnett Show, and worked on animation for films such as Grease and Shinbone Alley. She then found an opportunity to develop her design sense as a graphic artist for a small design studio in Pasadena. In 1987, Victoria began an artistic partnership with her then artist husband, David Zweifel. During the 80’s and 90’s, in their Ventura, California studio, they created elaborate ceramic and wood sculptures for exhibit and sale in galleries across the country. As a natural expression of the combined artistic skills she had thus far developed, Victoria began working in assemblage. However, due to the economic realities involved in full-time artistic pursuits, Victoria was compelled to branch off in yet another direction—she became an expert in European and American art and antiques, ultimately representing high-end collectors, and managing major art shows including the Los Angeles Art Show and the Marin Show: Art of the Americas. After years of working in the antique and art business, she found her way back to the Los Angeles area in 1998, where her focus eventually turned back to assemblage art. Her current works are infused with the sensibilities she gained from her experience in the art and antiques world. Visit Victoria's website at: www.artassemblage.com.
