Linda Abbott Trapp
Artist Reception: July 18th
In the last few years, my pursuits have come full circle, back to the passion for art that drove my actions early in life. During the 1960’s and early 1970’s, I operated a pottery and weaving studio in La Crosse, WI, studied serigraph production and sculpture, and taught numerous community classes in clay and fiber. In addition, I owned a supply shop for pottery and weaving.
By 1973-74, I was teaching art in a mission school in Ethiopa. My experiences there led me to redirect my career into counseling, with an international emphasis, and I earned a Master’s and a PhD upon my return to the U.S. I kept up an active role in the arts and eventually ended up in CA. Here,
I have returned to my first love, art, an have held a number of one-woman shows. My work has appeared in regional and national juried shows, and garnered several prestigious awards.
