Arcata’s Crestmark Architectural Millworks is a supplier of fine cabinetry and custom millwork for commercial contractors in and around the San Francisco Bay area and beyond. They have a number of surplus 4′x8′ sheets of MDF, Particle board in thicknesses of ¼” to 1” and more. We will be helping to divert these excess supplies by selling them at low cost to the community on Saturday, November 22nd across the street from the Arcata Co-op. In some cases these sheets will have various colors and patterns of plastic laminate (Formica for example) glued to their faces. Most of the material will be CARB (California Air Resources Board) compliant, and in some cases it will meet the more stringent NAUF (No Added Urea Formaldehyde) spec.donated from Crestmark! Great for cabinet makers!

Arts! Arcata features The Art of Linda Medoff

photo 3

The Marsh District – SCRAP Humboldt will host the eclectic and unique creations of local artist, Linda Medoff during the month of October, with an opening reception during Arts! Arcata from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, October 10th. Linda’s work explores a wide variety of materials like repurposing birth control packs into mermaid scales and building a jellyfish from a discarded lampshade.

Some of Medoff’s happiest early childhood memories are of arranging sticks and stones and making mud pies in  the yard, sorting buttons in the house, and playing with scraps in her father’s  tool shop.  The art shown at SCRAP Humboldt is a part of the work Medoff has produced in the last 8 years, since moving to Arcata. Medoff “makes art because (she) must” and “hopes to uplift, inspire and provoke the creativity in others.“
