Join us for a magical evening at Twilight in the Gardens!

Bring a blanket, snacks, and drinks and find a spot to picnic outside. Tubey Frank will be providing us with a rousing musical performance, and over at our craft tables we’ll be making mosaics out of natural materials with artist Arely Pellegrino!

You can also learn more about PMG through fun, casual self-guided tours of our mosaicked basement, and can check out When the Cracks Deepen: Works by Isaac Scott in our galleries.

Space is limited and we strongly recommend purchasing your tickets ahead of time. Proof of vaccination is required to attend this event.

ABOUT THE MUSICIAN:

Tubey Frank has been described as “bedroom pop” “expansive folk” and “psychedelic garage rock”. The project’s writer and primary performer Josh Kirwin has been  compared to Brit Daniel, Damon Alburn, Bob Dylan, Nick Hakim, and Elliott Smith. In his years of letting music influence his life, he has particularly drawn from musical heroes Syd Barrett, Cibo Matto, Nick Drake, St. Vincent, The Soulquarians, Tom Waits, DJ Shadow, and Harry Nilsson.

Since a child, Kirwin was in the home studio, recording Christmas tapes with his family on a 4-track tape recorder, and grew up in the house of a musician, no stranger to bar gigs and festival backstages. By age 8, he was writing counter melody arrangements in his head, with no knowledge of music theory. By age 12, songs were being written on an old Hondo electric guitar. Finishing out his teen years as bassist of many punk/rock/psychedelia/pop outfits in the Lancaster, PA area, Kirwin had explored and embodied the power and joy of electric music.

Rounding into twenties, Kirwin hustled as a touring musician, while also experimenting in theatre and schooling, until a near-death-experience. Sustaining many upper-body injuries, told he may never play an instrument again, Kirwin healed in record time with lots of help and determination. Once back on the road touring colleges, he was convinced that continuing to work in music was the light at the end of the tunnel that kept him alive. “The art of music has given me much to live for.”

ABOUT THE TEACHING ARTIST:

Our Teaching Artist for this Twilight event is Arely Pellegrino of The Painted Sun Studio. Co-founder & Administrator & Lead Artist of Civil Engagement at The Positive Signs Initiative, Arely Pellegrino is a local artist who immigrated here from Central America during a time of war in her own country. Much of her work speaks about her life experiences; loss, trauma, healing, hope, and advocacy.

Arely has a long history of art experience. From the time she was a little girl, she used art as a way to understand the world around her. She realized how large of an impact art has made in her life and others. Her innate need to create and self-express follows her in everything she does. Arely has a degree in studio art with a concentration in psychology, and a healing certification in Reiki. Her approach to art and life is holistic and mindful. She uses these skills to work in her community. Some of her past and current work includes; Immigration reform, mental health work, cancer support, working with individuals disabilities, and traumatic brain injury.
