The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee and six-time Grammy award-winning drummer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Chad Smith, is coming to Stone Harbor, New Jersey! Road Show Company presents, in collaboration with SceneFour Productions: The Art of Chad Smith, a limited engagement fine art exhibition at Ocean Galleries in Stone Harbor from Friday, May 28 through Monday, May 31.

The iconic drummer will be making two live, in-person meet-the-artist appearances at Ocean Galleries on Saturday May 29 from 7-10 p.m. and Sunday, May 30 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. All artwork will be on exhibition and available for acquisition.

RSVPs are strongly suggested. CLICK HERE TO RSVP  or call 609-368-7777. Visit Ocean Galleries for more info and gallery hours.

“I think that this is a really exciting new medium which is important and will stand the test of time and will be timeless. Music, sound, visualization . . . all of those things go hand in hand and have through the history of art,” said Chad Smith. “My hope is that its’ the emotion, the fluidity and intensity that come across . . . and of course the way that this medium utilizes the lighted sticks is really something that is totally unique . . . you’d don’t play with lighted sticks every day and to see that is to really visualize the motion and the emotion that go into it: therefore, my personality comes through.”

If you ever wanted to meet Chad Smith, this is the perfect opportunity to do so. You can spend the weekend at the Jersey Shore, buy a great piece of art, and spend time with an iconic drummer. What’s not to love?! With COVID-19 restrictions easing up and vaccinations on the rise, I couldn’t think of a better way to kick off the summer in style.
