Kids get their own art show

Ta­cony Academy Charter School stu­dent artists will have their own show un­til the end of the week at the Star­board Side Gal­lery & Stu­dio in­side the Port­side Art Cen­ter, 2531 E. Le­high Ave. It’s a first-time ex­hib­i­tion for the charter school’s stu­dents, said art teach­er Am­ber Gan­zelli. There will be about 17 works by the high school’s fine art stu­dents, she said, and more than 50 works from the 8th grade art elect­ive pu­pils. All works were cre­ated this school year, and most are two-di­men­sion­al. A few sculp­tures and pho­tos along with mixed-me­dia and ceram­ic pieces will be on dis­play.  Gan­zelli re­por­ted Monday that there was a good turnout for the show’s open­ing last Fri­day. The gal­lery is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. There’s no ad­mis­sion, but it’s best to call 215-427-1514 be­fore go­ing. ••
