Picture This!

In collaboration with Ward Home, PF/PCA announces Picture This! a juried photo show on view for one day only - Saturday, January 12, 2013.  It is also a gala fundraiser being held  that evening from 6:00 - 9:00pm, at Pittsburgh Center for the Arts in Shadyside.

Tickets are $75. Soups, sweets and cocktails are served throughout the evening, and there will be a silent auction. All proceeds from the event will help Ward Home, the area's premier provider of independent living programs and educational support for at-risk teenagers. RSVP (no later than Jan. 4) by contacting Corie Turner at 412-722-1404 x236 or cturner@wardhome.org

The show features examples of work by Ward Home youth who attended a workshop by PF/PCA's Youth Media Program. They were asked to express through photography how they "pictured" their future.

The exhibit also features 14 photos by nine professional Pittsburgh photographers. This year's juror is Ellen Fleurov, Executive Director of Silver Eye Center for Photography. She will judge the professional photographer's exhibit only. All the work in this exhibit will be available for purchase during the event.

Each year, Ward Home teaches and counsels approximately 150 teen moms, teen girls and teen boys in critical life-skills. They prepare them for employment, the armed forces, and/or higher education. For more information about Ward Home's mission visit: www.wardhome.org
