NJ United States + Google Map

This May, Gallery on Main's Artist of the Month series features “Rock N’ Roll” paintings by New Jersey-based artist Phillip T. Baker. His work will be on view, and available for purchase, from May 1 through 31, 2022. Meet the artist at a free opening reception on Saturday, May 7, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Phillip Baker, who started painting at a young age, says, “I would paint anything I could get my hands on. Overnight I went from painting Bozo the Clown to painting Alice Cooper, after seeing him on Wolfman Jack’s Midnight Special. Music and art have inspired him his whole life. As he got older and started attending concerts, says Baker, “huge banners were permitted at concert venues, and I often painted a bed-sheet banner of the bands preforming that evening. To whomever is responsible for outlawing banners at concerts, I sincerely thank you! This is how my career of painting canvas was started.” Baker proudly notes that the name “Rock N’ Roll Painter” was bestowed on him by Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler. He first met Tyler in the 1980s, when he painted a 42-by-60-inch portrait of the musician the gained him entrance to Tyler’s private birthday

Kraftwerk 3-D

May 14 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
NJ United States + Google Map
$45 – $95

After their worldwide hugely successful 3-D concert tours, the Electro pioneers Kraftwerk are coming to New Brunswick! Bringing together music and performance art, Kraftwerk 3-D concerts are a true "Gesamtkunstwerk—a total work of art.” The multimedia project Kraftwerk was started in 1970 by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider. They set up their electronic Kling Klang Studio in Düsseldorf, Germany, where they conceived and produced all Kraftwerk albums. By the mid 1970s Kraftwerk had achieved international recognition for their revolutionary electronic sound scapes and their musical experimentation with robotics and other technical innovations. With their visions of the future, Kraftwerk created the soundtrack for the digital age of the 21st century. Their compositions, using innovative techniques, synthetic voices, and computerized rhythms, have had a major international influence across an entire range of music genres: from Electro to Hip Hop, from Techno to SynthPop. In their live performances, Kraftwerk—Ralf Hütter, Henning Schmitz, Fritz Hilpert, Falk Grieffenhagen—illustrate their belief in the respective contributions of both man and machine. Starting with the retrospective of their Catalogue at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 2012, in recent years Kraftwerk have returned full circle back to their origins within the Düsseldorf art scene
