Len Youngo has perfectly cut 3 of Linda’s Pittsburgh memories into steel as only a man with his 30 years of artisan passion can do. Featured in these ornaments… "Game Time at Heinz Field" – With packed stands you can nearly hear the roar of black and gold fans emanating from this ornaments. This by no means detracts from the beauty of the scene as the Allegheny and Monongahela form the Ohio in the foreground. "Skating Together at PPG Place" – This scene is one familiar to all Pittsburgh natives and visitors alike who have ever walked around the rink at PPG Place, or put their skates on to join the fun on a wintry holiday evening. "Waiting For You Under Kaufmann’s Clock" – This career changing painting of a National Historic Landmark, Kaufmann’s Clock, transformed Linda’s career from portraits to Pittsburgh scenes after it became loved by the regional masses.

These 3 pieces will mark six total contributions from Linda to our Artist Series ornaments. Join us as we make them available to you this Saturday July 23rd. Linda and Len will be there signing pieces from this year and last. To top it off we’ll have refreshments for all and door prizes some lucky customers as well.

This is going to be a lot of fun, and we are excited to welcome you in, and out of the heat. To get directions, click here. We hope to see you there!
