Spend a summer night at Twilight in the Gardens!

BYOBBS (Bring Your Own Booze, Blanket, and Snacks) and enjoy a live performance by Alternative/Indie Soul artist Tre. Charles in our sparkly mosaicked courtyard. Charles welcomes listeners into his world through a captivating mix of warm, soulful undertones, poignant lyrics, and emotive vocals. Be sure to check out our art tables as well, where local artist Sar will be helping us to create zines, a fun activity that blends several art forms such as poetry and collage. Participants will not only learn how to create their own zines but also explore different art therapy techniques designed to promote relaxation, self-reflection, and emotional well-being. Guests are encouraged to bring their own photographs or keepsakes to incorporate into their zines!

Guests can also enjoy self-guided tours of our rarely-seen mosaicked basement, and can be one of the first to see our latest exhibition, “After the Flowers Pass: Works by Amir Khadar.”

Tre. Charles is an Alternative/Indie Soul artist who dives into the depths of his soul, inviting you into his world with an expressive blend of warm and soulful undertones, powerful lyrics, and emotive crooning; which helps you navigate your way through the encompassing experience. Raised along the East Coast from city to city, Charles was exposed to a myriad of different customs and cultures. It is from these experiences that he cultivated his sound, paying homage to his nomadic upbringing and lifestyle. With Charles not having been formally trained in music, it allows him to focus on conveying emotions in his most vulnerable capacity.

His sound has drawn comparisons of modern talents like Sampha, Hozier, and James Blake but also glints of classic pioneers like Muddy Waters and Lauryn Hill. Pitchfork contributor Brian Howe described Tre. Charles’s sound as “stretched and shifted vocal harmonies, and long-tailed reverbs and delays that hum like cathedrals.” Howe also continues with “This labyrinth of sound, blurred at the edges yet sharply etched in the middle, is where we find his just-woke-up voice and glinting guitar, his fingers tweezing jazzy splinters from thick barre chords. The overall effect is calming, but in a transfixing, time-halting way, like dancing candlelight.”

Sar is a local visual artist and art therapist. As an art therapist, they specialize in using creative expression for mindfulness and healing. Their workshop will be a space where creativity meets mindfulness, offering a unique opportunity for individuals to engage in therapeutic art-making while learning the art of zine creation.
