"Return of the Condor"

Artist in Residence, Linda Bjornson

Linda Bjornson was selected as the first Artist In Residence at Pinnacles National Monument. Linda is a local stained glass artist based out of Aromas, CA. She is heavily involved with many of the art councils and guilds that strive to enrich the lives of the people in the community by connecting them to experiences and exposure with the arts.

A nature lover and an art major in college, Linda has been designing and fabricating with glass since 1979. She is also published, having produced two stained glass pattern books for hobbiests. If you are interested in seeing more of Linda's work, please visit her website at www.lbglassart.com.

Linda was one of nine featured artists at a Pinnacles Art Show at Galeria Tonantzin in San Juan Bautista after her residency ended. This month-long showing coincided with both The Condor Classic and The San Juan Bautista Gallery Walk. A portion of all art sold during this month benefitted our non-profit friends group, Pinnacles Partnership. For more information about Linda, please visit her website.
