The RPAC Gallery is a storefront retail gallery along with an extensive collection of online offerings from our Resident Artists. We provide a wonderful space on Main Street with high visibility and foot traffic, in the middle of downtown Ridgefield, CT for artists to showcase their work. Our goal everyday is to help our resident artists with anything they may need to reach as many people as possible. We pride ourselves on the many different styles and media our artists work in, as we believe in maintaining a rich and diverse collection of works for the community to enjoy. If you see a work of art that you would like to view in person, our storefront gallery will set up a private showing of any exhibiting artist’s work.
You can take pride in your art and earn a living doing something you love. RPAC’s mission is to create, promote and exhibit the working, emerging, and student artist while providing a supportive and creative environment. Every new exhibition at the RPAC Gallery will be accompanied by a featured guest artist. This artist is someone who will be invited to come showcase their work in our gallery.

Frankie Vinci’s Rock ‘n’ Roll journey has led him to create the Pop Art he’s so passionate about today. These raw-colorful Pop Art / Mixed Media pieces are reflective of his years as a troubadour and his Rock ‘n’ Roll experiences performing in the iconic clubs and concert halls from NYC to LA , all of this has become part of his tapestry as a Pop Artist.
Frankie is a Multi-Platinum songwriter / recording artist and has shared the stage and or worked in the recording studio alongside iconic names such as : Aerosmith, Van Halen, Alice Cooper, Meat Loaf, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Tim McGraw, Roberta Flack, Dino Danelli & Gene Cornish (Rascals), Wally Bryson (Raspberries), Ricky Byrd (Joan Jett, Roger Daltrey), Robert Lamm (Chicago), Phil Ramone, Eddie Kramer, etc…
Frankie’s Pop Art is inspired by music, fashion, film and the vintage billboards that have been distressed by weather and time. The multi-layered backstage passes, concert posters covering the dark alleys and backstage walls in Rock clubs like CBGB’s, all add fire to Frankie’s creativity. Frankie’s artful eye sees the beauty in subway graffiti, random paint drips, metal rust, torn paper, combined with detailed painting and carefully composed layouts. His flair for color combinations and the placement of iconic images over his canvases is creating a buzz in the art community.
