Brenda Turteltaub Feldstein displays her exhibit at HANSA workspace
On May 3rd, HANSA workspace welcomed Brenda Turtelaub Feldstein as its new artist-in-residence, showcasing her latest exhibit, “Eyes of Wonder: A Photographic Exploration of Nature and Gratitude.” The exhibit’s goal is to inspire viewers to connect with nature, appreciate the present moment, and cherish the world around them. Highlights include stunning shots from various National Parks and local gems like Chestnut Ridge’s Eternal Flame.
“It all started with a life-changing trip to Yosemite National Park,” Brenda shared with the audience in the Great Room at HANSA Wednesday evening. She recalled driving for miles in the forest as she entered the Park, and at one point the brush cleared revealing colossal granite monoliths towering into the blue sky. “It was awe-inspiring and I was overcome with a deep desire to capture all the beauty before my eyes, from the seemingly unimportant moss on a fallen trunk to the vast landscapes that seemed to stretch on forever,” Brenda said. Since then, she’s been exploring the outdoors, snapping pictures of the incredible wonders from near and far away destinations.

Brenda’s love for nature and photography are intrinsically connected. “Photography has trained my eyes to go beyond merely observing and allows me to truly see and acknowledge what is in front of me with a sense of wonder and gratitude,” she explained. The “Eyes of Wonder” exhibit features selected works from Siesta Key Beach, Yosemite National Park, Joshua Tree State Park, Yellowstone Park, the Sea of Galilee, Zion National Park, and Niagara Falls State Park.
As visitors explore her work at HANSA, Brenda hopes to encourage them to embark on their own journey to find wonder and gratitude around them. “Buffalo is certainly a wonderful place to start!” she noted.
In addition to photography, Brenda is an award-winning filmmaker through her video production company, A Special Story. She collaborates with organizations, brands, and people to tell inspiring stories that connect with audiences and create a positive impact in the community. Some of Brenda’s clients include Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, The Park School of Buffalo, Buffalo Jewish Federation, Kulture Khazana LCC, and Discover Fitness among others.

Brenda’s exhibit at HANSA will run through the summer. Her framed photographs are available for purchase, with $50 from each sale being donated to the Buffalo Urban League and Jewish Family Services of WNY in memory of the May 14th victims, as she believes her impact must stretch beyond the exhibit walls.
