TEANECK, N.J. – The Puffin Cultural Forum will display artifacts of war with the opening of “Combat Paper & Beyond” on Saturday, June 18, at 4 p.m.

Art crafted from recycled military uniforms, bullet impressions, barbed wire, midnight memories and other artifacts of war is the centerpiece of “Combat Paper & Beyond.”

The exhibit explores the vision of the Combat Paper Project through innovative artwork created by veterans and nonveterans. Multimedia work by Eli Wright is featured with additional works by award-winning artists Jim Fallon, David Keefe, Rachel Heberling, Elisabeth Smolarz, Frank Wagner, Ron Erikson, Nate Lewis and others.

The opening event includes remarks by artists, a Warrior Writers poetry jam and music by singer/songwriter Tamra Hayden.

The exhibition is curated by Walt Nygard and Jan Barry, both of Teaneck, who served in Vietnam in the U.S. Marine Corps and Army, respectively.

A combat medic in the U.S. Army in Iraq, Wright currently serves as co-coordinator of the Combat Paper Project at the Printmaking Center of New Jersey in Branchburg. He heads a team of Combat Paper and Warrior Writers instructors who provide art workshops for veterans and active-duty soldiers at a number of locations in New Jersey and other East Coast states, including Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland and Fort Belvoir, Va.

The opening is free; reservations are recommended. Click here for more information and reservations or call 201-836-3499.
