February Artist of the Month: Linda Mensch

The Many Creative Faces of Linda Mensch

Linda Mensch Collage

 There are many ways Linda Mensch is known here in Warwick, N.Y. She is the owner, artistic director and teacher at The Moving Co. Dance Center. She creates handmade jewelry. She and her husband, Glen, foster dogs on their way to good homes. She is a neighbor and a friend. When I think of her, two words come to mind; creative movement.

Dancer, choreographer ~ Linda’s dances can often be seen out-of-doors – walking by Railroad Green…

or sharing a picnic at Scheuermann Farms during the Warwick Arts Festival. The Moving Co. recitals held at Seligmann Center make creative use of the grounds…

along with other spaces in and around Warwick. Main Street landmarks like the old Gilvan’s building (when it was Port Of Call) ~ or the Carriage Path steps ~ or in front of Village Hall ~ or at Winslow Therapeutic Riding Center ~ all places you could find Linda’s choreography expressed through her dances.

Jewelry maker ~ Linda’s handmade pieces are available now at Newhards on Main Street and at Consciousfork on Railroad Avenue. Sharp Arts Community will feature more about her jewelry interview in a later post…stay tuned…
