Linda J. Mendelson
Linda J. Mendelson is a fiber artist whose techniques include knitting, crochet, sewing, and felting. Melding words, graphic designs, and color, Mendelson makes wearable pieces that toe the line between fine art and utilitarian objects. Her art to wear pieces are inspired by poetry and writing, as well as the myriad modern art movements that precede her; including, constructivism, minimalism, and abstract expressionism. From 1975 to 2013, Mendelson was represented by Julie Artisans Gallery on Madison Avenue in New York, owned and operated by gallerist and craft historian Julie Schafler Dale. Mendelson now lives and works in Yonkers, where her apartment doubles as her studio. Her work can be found in numerous private and museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
