Arts! Arcata features The Art of Linda Medoff

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.“
