 Last night was the opening of "The Magic of Nature" on Saturday, May 7 at 7 p.m.  The following is from an advanced notice of the event.

The exhibit celebrates the work of more than 30 dedicated photographers who have documented the renewal of the Teaneck Creek wetlands for more than eight years, and marks the culmination of the Puffin Foundation’s 2010-2011 "Art of Nature Photography" workshop, led by renowned local photographer, Rachel Banai.

At the opening reception, Banai and the photographers will be available for conversation and questions. Free and open to the public. The exhibit runs from May 3-26. Regular gallery hours are Tuesdays through Thursdays, noon to 4 p.m. or by appointment.Many of the participants come to the workshop year after year, considering the Photography Club and theTeaneck Creek Conservancy a special community. This show captures the four seasons, bringing them indoors for all to experience through the photographers’ lens. Most works are close-ups, focusing on composition, color, and light - yet all are different, reflecting individual photographers’ personalities and styles.
The Puffin Cultural Forum is located at 20 Puffin Way, Teaneck.   Call 201-836-3499 or visit
