$15/ Students & Seniors
Come out for an evening that is sure to get weird – with improvisation, strange noises, and glitter!
Performer Impressionist draws from the musicians’ eclectic backgrounds of metal, jazz, indie rock and more to create songs that jump from spacey to peppy to weird and back. The band’s unique use of the trombone, distorted guitar riffs, throat singing and creepy noises give their songs a special signature and leave a memorable impression with the listener.
The music will get you in the perfect mood to create a sparkling masterpiece with teaching artist Kristin Schattenfield-Rein. She’ll help you create your own improvised creation with our personal favorite – glitter!
Twilights are designed so that each visitor can decide their own experience. For a more casual evening, pick your favorite spot and set up picnic-style to experience the live music, great people and surreal environment. If you are feeling adventurous make sure to explore PMG and partake in all of the activities with other culturally driven attendees.
Visitors also have the chance to learn more about PMG through fun, casual mini-tours of the space and can view the temporary exhibition hanging in our galleries. All Twilight in the Gardens evenings are BYOBBS (Bring Your Own Booze, Blanket and Snacks)!
Tickets are available July 14 via our website or by phone (215) 733-0390.
ABOUT THE PERFORMERS AND ARTIST:
PERFORMER Impressionist fuses weird noises with elements of metal, indie rock, and jazz to create original compositions that each have their own personality and story. The strange and eclectic mix would not be possible without assortment of talent musicians that bring their specific style and influences to the mix.
TEACHING ARTIST Kristen Schattenfield-Rein, a resident of Philadelphia since 2008, focuses on the process of making a piece rather than the end result. Her latest work is concentrated on varied materials, mainly epoxy resin, glass, sand, graphite flake and silvered tar. The current pieces adhere – just barely – to the convention of wall hangings, they creep past their edges, becoming sculptural and suggestive of something beyond the obvious. Her work is recognized nationally & internationally and is widely exhibited and collected.
