SUMMIT, NJ - The public is invited to a Meet The Artists reception and gallery tour at Reeves-Reed Arboretum on July 13, from 4 - 6 p.m.

Three renowned, award-winning artists from the Tri-State area are currently showcasing their works both on the arboretum grounds, and in the Wisner House Gallery at RRA, as part of the current installation, entitled "Earth - Wind - Fire."
 
"Earth", the first of nature’s symbols, is represented by the art of Cindy Booth.  Having trained in multiple media and techniques, Booth honed her metal working skills to produce copper and steel “canvases” upon which she then uses solder and patinas to produce chemical reactions for results reminiscent of fantastic landscapes and botanical forms. 
 
Kinetic sculptor, Drew Klotz, brings his popular outdoor, wind activated sculptures, for which he is best known, to highlight "Wind," and glass artist, Barbara Galazzo, melds light and color into a kaleidoscope of movement, shadow, and texture with her fused-glass sculptures, representing "Fire."  
 
Together, they provided the backdrop for Reeves-Reed Arboretum’s recent major fundraiser "Art in the Garden," as well as the inspiration for the Arboretum’s many environmental education programs.

Earth - Wind - Fire will continue through November 1.  All works are for sale and the artists will donate 30% of each purchase to the Arboretum.  
 
The reception on July 13 is free to the public and light refreshments will be served.  Reeves-Reed Arboretum in located at 165 Hobart Avenue.
