In the same way that the artist’s hand is visible in a work of art, owner Linda Atiyeh has handcrafted Gallery 30 in her own dynamic style. Following the muse of her spirit, Linda has allowed her selective taste, eye for detail and love of the arts to guide Gallery 30’s evolution into the truly extraordinary place that it is today. She genuinely desires to build and nurture relationships with those around her, and her enthusiasm and exuberance is irresistible. Linda’s mission in business--as in life--is to speak gently, to act fairly and to treat all people with love, dignity and respect.
Linda pours her whole heart into everything that she does, and Gallery 30 is a tangible reflection of the passion that she brings to every facet of her life. In high school Linda served on student council and was elected President of her class. An outstanding athlete and leader to her teammates, Linda was inducted into the Moravian College Hall of Fame, and she is now a member of the Moravian College Hall of Fame Selection Committee. Her alma mater Harrison Morton Junior High School has also inducted Linda into their Hall of Fame, recognizing her as a self-made business woman and a positive role model for students.
A native Pennsylvanian, Linda takes great pride in her community and is committed to giving back in ways both large and small. She currently sits on the Board of Directors of the Adams County Arts Council and is a member of Main Street Gettysburg, Gettysburg Area Retail Merchants Association, the Gettysburg Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen.
Linda Atiyeh has also been awarded several Historic Preservation Awards by the Borough of Gettysburg for her restoration of historic properties and storefronts in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. In May 2015, Historic Gettysburg Adams County will present Linda with an Outstanding Preservation Award for her rejuvenation and restoration of the Inn at Lincoln Square (also known as the Joel Buchanan Danner House) on Gettysburg’s Historic Lincoln Square.
Linda is a free spirit who lives in the moment yet still has a vision for the future. As the owner of Gallery 30 she is constantly breaking boundaries and pushing our potential to new heights. Linda’s being is intricately woven into the texture of Gallery 30, and her creative, forward thinking is the driving force behind our continued success.
