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

$30 – $45

PBS-TV Star Chris Ruggiero Comes to Brook Arts Center for One Night Only Brook Arts Center welcomes singer Chris Ruggiero, who will present his vintage rock and roll concert, “Silly Love Songs,” on Friday, May 20th. It will be the 22-year-old singer’s first full-length concert appearance in Somerset County since he rose to national fame following his PBS Television appearance. Ruggiero has been crisscrossing the country and has already notched 14 states on his tour so far this season. We’re very excited to bring Chris Ruggiero to the stage for an evening of pop-rock standards as you’ve never heard them before.

His new album “I Am Chris Ruggiero” features original arrangements from legendary arranger Charlie Calello on timeless classics such as “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
