Sneak Preview

So what is it about being around creative people? They are like flashes of bright red in gray landscape. I always feel elevated in their presence.

This weekend the Creek is opening a photography exhibit that features the work of members of the Puffin Camera Club. An eclectic bunch, led by professional photographer Rachel Banai, they have been documenting the environs of the Teaneck Creek Park for over seven years now. Their collective work has captured the metamorphosis of this 46-acre brownfields-to-greenfields site with amazing clarity and beauty.

In the "Windows on the Park" exhibit PCC members have used old wooden window sashes to frame some of their most striking images. In the exhibit the frames will be hung from the black walnut trees in the meadow area of the park during the month of April.

We had a great time hanging the work. Each piece was more incredible than the next. I couldn't help thinking about what people see when they come to our park. It is intentionally a wild place, without the outward trappings of formal gardens or trimmed and groomed green spaces, but that does not mean it is without great beauty. The photographers in this group can see it, and catch it. Can you?

Come on out and see for yourself:
