Start your Memorial Day weekend off right with Twilight in the Gardens!
River Bones Band is known for its high energy frenetic sets, tight and compelling vocal vocal harmonies, inspired songwriting, and their ability to turn any room into a dance hall. Drawing influence from bluegrass, rock and roll, and hot club jazz alike, their sound is hard to put your finger on but undeniably infectious. The band is comprised of Brandon Warrick on vocals, mandolin and banjo, Luke Wolfrom on vocals and guitar, Sean Dorn on bass, Hannah Taylor on vocals, guitar and washboard, and Michael Durkan on fiddle.
Teaching Artist Stacey Holder is a multi-disciplinary artist living and working in Philadelphia. She received her BFA from The Tyler School of Art and studied painting in Rome. Working primarily in quilting and video, her work explores the relationship between colors and patterns, using them to describe or pay homage to everyday moments that go unnoticed.
This month’s art activity is inspired by bedazzle-tastic artist Loy Bowlin, better known as “The Original Rhinestone Cowboy.” Loy is known for covering every inch of his home in glitter and rhinestones, wearing fabulously decorated suits, and even having rhinestones implanted into his dentures. Holder will help you embellish sunglasses, hair clips, and buttons with a variety of beads and bling!
Visitors also have the chance to learn more about PMG through fun, casual mini-tours of the space and can check out He Lives a Painted Life in our galleries.
Twilight in the Gardens is a BYOBBS event (Bring Your Own Booze, Blanket, and Snacks), and guests are encouraged to relax and picnic in the space.
