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

Brook Arts Center proudly presents singer Chris Ruggiero on May 20, 2022, at 8 pm. Ruggiero takes his audiences on a journey through the golden age of rock and roll, breathing new life into the timeless music of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s. Chris has been described as an "old soul" at 22 years old, whose approach to his concert appearances is more in line with that of a bygone era than it is the artists of his generation.. Chris first came to national attention when he performed on a nationwide PBS-TV special and has been touring the country with stops in Las Vegas, Cleveland, Wisconsin, Texas, Chicago, Florida, New Jersey, and, of course, New York. His new album "I Am Chris Ruggiero" features original arrangements from legendary arranger Charlie Calello on timeless classics such as "Wouldn't it Be Nice," “Put Your Head on My Shoulder,” "My Cherie Amour," "The More I See You" and "This Magic Moment." Calello has had over 100 national records as an arranger and producer, having worked with Frankie Valli, Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Neil Diamond and Barry Manilow, to name a few. Upon completion, Calello commented, "It's been a long time since I heard
