Picture this: A gallery filled with dozens of glass sculptures blown and shaped by professional artists and priced at thousands of dollars. But the ones everyone wants to buy are small glass tiles made by at-risk teens. That was the scene at the "Picture This!" gala Saturday at Pittsburgh Glass Center in Friendship. The event benefits Ward Home, which teaches teens independent living skills. Speakers included alumna Kaneisha Robinson, a Slippery Rock University senior majoring in criminology who hopes to become a probation officer for juvenile offenders. "I want to give them a chance to start over. Just because they start on the wrong path doesn't mean they have to stay on it," she says. The big picture also included Ward Home executive director Daryl Lucke (with John), Ruby Kang (with James), Deb Smit (with Johan) and Deanna Rebisa (with Jim).
