Summit, NJ As part of our continuing community outreach, Reeves-Reed Arboretum, working with the Grand Summit Hotel, presents 3 curated exhibitions annually at The Hat Tavern. On show currently at the Hat Tavern is Heidler & Heeps VINYL COLLECTION, signed limited edition photographic prints from two UK-based artists.

Two independently successful photographers, Richard Heeps and Natasha Heidler, have collaborated to make this beautifully mesmerizing collection – a celebration of the vinyl record and analogue technology.

South African born Natasha Heidler's seductive images reflect her own uniquely developed dichromatic technique resulting in something which is neither a straight forward photograph nor photogram. This special dark room process confounds and intrigues both art lovers and photographers alike.

Richard Heeps' seductive, highly saturated colors, and sophisticated pictorial structures demonstrate a true love and empathy for his subject matter – be it cool, descriptive interiors, still life or landscape, or vinyl records. His distinctive style pushes the limits of lens-based photography without the need for digital manipulation.

In 2007, Richard, along with photographer Natasha Heidler, founded Bleach Box Photography Gallery, a platform that participates in approximately ten worldwide art fairs a year. Working with artists, they produce their work from negatives in his Cambridge-based darkrooms, sourcing the best materials to produce high-end fine art pieces that are in many international collections.

Heidler & Heeps VINYL COLLECTION will be on exhibit at the Hat Tavern of the Grand Summit Hotel from now through the month of January 2017. All of the works are for sale and the artists will donate 30% of each purchase to Reeves-Reed Arboretum. For information about this exhibit, please contact Frank Juliano, Executive Director, Reeves-Reed Arboretum, f.juliano@reeves-reedarboretum.org.

Celebrating over 40 years as an historic public garden, education resource, and non-profit conservancy, Reeves-Reed Arboretum engages, educates and enriches the public through horticulture and environmental education, and the care and utilization of the gardens and estate.
