Picture This! at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts
December 31, 2012 by James
The Pittsburgh Center for the Arts is presenting ‘Picture This!’, an annual juried photography exhibit, on January 12 from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm. Tickets are $75 each and suggested attire is dress casual. Proceeds will benefit the Ward Home.
The exhibit will feature local photographers and teens from the Ward Home. The photographs will be judged by Ellen Fleurov from the Silver Eye Center for Photography. Many of the photographs will be offered for sale.
Those who attend can enjoy soup, sweets, cocktails and can take part in a silent auction. Sponsorships are available and food donations will be gratefully accepted. It’s very likely that businesspersons from all over the area, including North Versailles, will want to sponsor this important exhibit. They might also wish to work with local printing companies to let their customers know about their contribution as a way of raising interest in the event. Companies who donate to charities and who sponsor charitable events often find that it indirectly helps them gain new customers.
The Ward Home provides services and programs to at-risk teens, who in turn learn many of the skills they will need in life in order to be able to live independently and to contribute positively to society. Those who are taking part in the photography exhibit are learning a skill that might very well provide them with a career for the future.
